Margaret Mead said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed people can make a difference", and that's exactly what's happening at North Hagerstown High School.
"I love that everyone at our school cares so much, the people that are here, it's amazing to see our Hub family come together to support one of us", said Sarah Mason, Sophomore Student Government Member at North Hagerstown High School.
One of North Hagerstown's Varsity Football Players fell ill just before this school year started, now North High's Student Government is helping out.
"So today, we're doing a Walk-A-Thon for a fellow student named Aaron who has Lukemia, and we just brought everyone out, and we're all walking and supporting him", Rebekah Hurwitz, Sophomore Student Government Member at North Hagerstown High School said.
Kimberly O'Kane, Student Government Adviser at North Hagerstown High School says, "We're raising money at every home football game, we're planning on doing collections at the end of the third quarter is how we've done it thus far. The cheerleaders have been helping us by going through the crowd, and everyone's been very, very generous. Whether they're from another school or our school, they've given money."
And Aaron's family says they can not believe the support the community is giving them in their time of need.
"They just want their son well, and we understand because we want him well as well, but they are overwhelmed by just how much money people are giving ti support their cause", said O'Kane.
The Walk-A-Thon going on here at North Hagerstown High really shows how one school of only about 1200 kids is coming together to support one of their own in a time of need.
Organizers say one walker who didn't even know Aaron, walked for over 4 1/2 hours, and they raised over $5,000 from the walk on Saturday, bringing the total they've raised over the past two weeks for Aaron's famiy to almost $9,000.
