West Gate K8’s second annual Community Walk for Autism Speaks was a huge success! Over 1,500 community members came out to bring awareness to a condition that affects 1 in 62 children. The event featured West Gate’s former student Mozart Sobrinho performing his song, “Stay with You.” The family fun walk also included bounce houses, DJ Calvo, face painting, information on services for people with autism, and more. Five other schools formed teams to participate in the walk and West Gate alone collected over $1010.00. Along with the St. Lucie County Firefighters, West Gate’s walk for Autism Speaks raised $18, 850.00 online and $8,364.97 at the walk.
Making an event like this a success is no easy task and we’d like to recognize the West Gate teachers and staff who worked hard to make this possible. From left to right: Sherry Petrino, Jessica McLaughlin, Lisa Landis, Shequita Merelus, Valentina Whyte and Mozart Sobrinho coordinated the event at Tradition Square for the second year.Read More
