Hot Coco 5K

After 10 weeks of training, seven Alta students and staff members successfully competed in the Hot COCO 5k in Cheshire on Saturday November 18th. The event was a fundraiser for Abilities Without Boundaries which is an organization that strives to help individuals with developmental disabilities lead more productive and fulfilling lives through vocational and social experiences. Prior to the event, students volunteered in a variety of capacities including set-up, runner registration, and the kid’s fun run. Despite the cold weather a fantastic and rewarding time was had by all!
