Student and teacher run 12 continuous hours to raise money for math department


EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM)-A local high school student and his math teacher thought of a creative way to bring attention to their fundraiser, run around their school for 12-hours straight.

Saint Bernard’s Academy student Joey Dugan and his math teacher Scott Cross started their 12-hour continuous run at seven o’clock Friday morning.

An aide station is set-up on the Henderson Street side of the school located at 222 Dollison Street.

Their goal is to raise enough money to purchase supplies.

“Were trying to get new white boards, a new projector, things like that, just various supplies that we needed for the math department,” Dugan. “It’s essentially sunrise to sunset at this point in the year, the only breaks the only breaks that we can take are for walking and then if we have to eat food for like three to four minutes, so we can do that, but nothing more than that.”

The run ended 7 p.m. the same day, anyone interested in donating can stop by the school or mail in a check.
