Tiger Trek raises nearly $19,000
Students of Springfield Elementary School raised $18,790.03 in the eleventh annual Tiger Trek sponsored by PAWS (People Aligned With Schools). In recent years, PAWS established a goal for the fundraising, each year raising the bar a bit, but this year no goal was set and students were asked to simply “do their best,” Elementary Principal Jeff Kuehn announced at the student rally prior to the bike ride. The students surpassed the 2015 fund-raising by $444. The top student fund-raisers for 2016 Tiger Trek hold signs proclaiming the total dollars raised.
