Western Nevada Collegeâ€™s Child Development Center is all about nurturing children and offering a high-quality preschool experience. But every year, the center also shares its caring spirit with the children of St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital.
The sixth annual Trike-A-Thon for St. Judeâ€™s at the center on March 20 provided plenty of smiles and displayed boundless energy concentrated in some 70 age 2 to six year-old drivers.
When they waved the proverbial checkered flag, the tots and their families raised more than $1,500 for the charity.
â€œWeâ€™ve done this for six years,â€ said Dr. Andrea Doran, the centerâ€™s director. â€œWe get to work with so many wonderful and healthy children, but we also want to remember those who are not so healthy.â€
