Green Day for MDA at West Genesee!
All West Genesee elementary schools will be participating this year in Green Day for MDA! In support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association and our friends living with neuromuscular diseases, we are on a mission to increase community awareness and hopefully make a donation to help fund research for a cure. Colton is a fourth grade friend at Onondaga Road, and you can meet Colton's Crew in this video by clicking here!
March 17 is a perfect day to go green - Green Day for MDA! Each class will have the opportunity to show their support and march around the bus loop for all the neighbors to see our green. Any spare change (or dollars!) students might like to bring to school and donate to the MDA can be dropped into the green bucket at the school door on their way out to Lap the Loop with their class.
