For the fifth consecutive year, students and staff at Giblyn displayed their continued support for the fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis by welcoming Chris Pendergast of the Ride for Life organization, who visited the school to discuss the neurological disorder.

The assembly, which was held for fourth-graders, featured messages of hope and perseverance for the students. Pendergast spoke to them about the group’s goal to continue raising funds for ALS research by traveling throughout the country, and about his life with the disease. The program was comprised of a video of the Ride for Life’s various journeys, a historical overview of the degenerative illness. Students were also able to Pendergast questions.

Giblyn annually hosts visits from the Ride for Life organization as a way to show its unwavering support for the cause, and for its students to learn the importance of charitable donations and never giving up.
