Local kids are raising money in honor of a young girl killed in the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

Catherine Hubbard was a first grader at Sandy Hook Elementary who was killed in the school tragedy back in December 2012.

Her cousin, Jack, is a fifth-grade student in Pittsford who started “Catherine’s Peace Team.” Members held a peace-themed party in honor of Catherine.

The group is also trying to build an animal sanctuary in Newtown because Catherine had a love and passion for animals. The state legislator has voted to get them 34 acres in the heart of Newtown.
