THE BRONX - Over 200 students from pre-K to seventh grade from the Santa Maria School on Zerega Avenue participated in the first-ever Kids Walk event for diabetes today.
The objective of the walk was to raise awareness about diabetes through networking, education and advocacy.
The children raised funds with the walk-a-thon and will be donating all of the money to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
