    As a 9th grader, Cecilia Fink has had more experience fundraising for charities than some people will in a lifetime. In her fourth year of raising money for charitable causes, Cece decided to organize the Thanksgiving Day Fun Run. “This was a big event for me. I came up with the idea, but obviously my parents were a huge help in getting everything together. The last few days leading up to the event were crazy. We had to get food for the runner’s stations, prizes for raffle tickets, get the course set up; it was a lot.”
