On Friday, February 21st, over 60 fifth-grade through eighth-grade students from St. Mary Catholic Community School in Crown Point gathered to play dodgeball and raise money for La Rabida Children’s Hospital in Chicago. La Rabida is the only children’s hospital in the country to specialize in chronic illnesses and developmental disabilities. The students raised several hundred dollars for the hospital, which treats many children from Northwest Indiana.
Seventh grader Dane Lach said that “I had fun competing with my team and playing for a good cause.” Student council representative Ellis Dumas said that “it was fun to announce and watch the games that were played for a great cause!”
