It was no ordinary high school senior project for a Henderson High School student of Chester County.
The Daily Local News reports the first Heart + Soul 5K run or walk Saturday raised $4,000 for cancer research.
The event was organized by high school senior Dominic Smith as part of a senior class project. The Chester County Hospital, which will receive the proceeds, also assisted with planning the event.
This isn’t the first major event in the area organized by a high school student.
The Daily Local News says two Henderson High School students last year organized the Freedom 5K on July 4 in honor of a friend who died of stomach cancer.
