Zion students raise funds

Zion Lutheran School students walked the Central Lakes trail during the annual Marathon for Nonpublic Education.

Students in preschool through 8th grade at Zion Lutheran School in Alexandria recently participated in the Marathon for Nonpublic Education.

With a goal of $8,000, the students collected donations for their fundraising walk. They raised more than $11,800, with additional donations from local businesses.

Money raised will go toward a collection center cabinet, the gym sound project, the bus fund and individual classroom needs.

Because the students reached their goal, they were given the opportunity to have a pie-throwing event on October 14, in which the teachers and principal were the targets.
