Henry Puffer’s “I Stand By Addie” walk/run raises $1,500 for Illinois Spina Bifida Association

The Henry Puffer Student Council raised $1,500 to support the Illinois Spina Bifida Association during the school’s ninth annual fundraiser walk/run on Friday, May 19. The students named the fundraiser “I Stand By Addie,” in honor of Henry Puffer third grader, Addie, who has Spina Bifida.

Many Henry Puffer families – including Addie and her family – attended the walk/run to raise awareness of Spina Bifida. Addie’s father, Adam, thanked the Puffer community for their support and explained what Spina Bifida is to the children.

Thank you, Henry Puffer PTA and Student Council, for providing these photos and information!
