Nearly 700 students and teachers Mary, Mother of the Redeemer Catholic School, Upper Gwynnedd, will participate in the Walk for Wellness through neighborhood streets Friday, Oct. 3 in an effort to raise money to support two causes that impact members of the student body.

Pledge money will be divided between the American Diabetes Association and the Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation.

This annual event is a tradition at MMR School in which the community has donated $7,500 in previous years.
