On Tuesday, August 6, freshman Emma Spies lead another successful fundraiser for Angel Flight Northeast – a Massachusetts-based nonprofit that provides free plane rides to children and adults suffering from cancer and other chronic debilitating diseases and conditions. This year’s event was held in memory of Kyle St. Clair, an eight-year-old Scarborough boy who passed away in January 2013 from lung disease and dysmotility, a gastrointestinal disease that attacks the digestive tract. St. Clair himself benefited from the Angel Flight program.
Spies and members of her Scarborough neighborhood added $2600 to the already-raised $4000 collected over the past three years for this organization. Lemonade, iced tea, sweets and pizza were some of the featured treats for purchase, along with fun activities for children and adults alike.
