Students at Hudson Prairie recently participated in their annual Pennies for Patients campaign, raising money for children with leukemia and lymphoma.

As an incentive to reach their goal, teachers and staff volunteered to have their hair shaved off as various amounts were raised.

Teachers William Schaub, Nicholas DeMoulin, and Hudson Prairie Principal Joe Behnke shaved off beards and hair as students not only met their goal, but exceeded it.

The students and staff at Hudson Prairie raised over $2638.81 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
