On the afternoon of May 23, students, staff and community members were found walking or running on the JSHS track for the 29th Annual Lang/Liese/Jurs Walk. The walk is held each year in memory of Grace Lang, a Kendall school nurse; Amber Liese, a Kendall graduate; and Libby Jurs, the Kendall High School nurse for over 20 years. This year’s walk raised $860. Proceeds were given to 13thirty Cancer Connect; Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester, NY; Kendall Volunteer Ambulance; American Lung Association; and Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance. Participants walked 3 miles on the track.
The Kendall Fire Department Ambulance crew were present at the event in honor of the ladies this event is named after and to pay their respects to the walkers. “We are very grateful for the donations that this walk generates for our service,” said Sue Maslyn, EMS Lieutenant of the Kendall Fire Department.
