CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — About 250 students from 2-years-old to 8th grade raised money for their school.

The TREK for TECH walk-a-thon fundraiser invited students to help raise money to update technology at St. James Episcopal School, most importantly a new intercom system.

"Thanks to the help of many parent volunteers, teachers, staff, and scholars it was a FABULOUSLY fun and successful TREK," they said in a release.

The 2-year-olds through Kindergartners walked the South Carancahua block around the school.
The first through fourth graders walked a mile to the Yacht Club. The fifth through eighth graders walked one and a half miles to the Harrison’s Landing T-head and back. They finished off the walk at their school playground and cooled off with some frozen treats.

The stellar students also organized some lemonade stands, sold some baked goods, and made phone calls to find sponsors for the walk.
