Do the Right Thing: Noah raised money for childhood cancer research
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — News10NBC is celebrating the winners of the spring’s “Do the Right Thing” award. Meet Noah Wells from Honeoye Falls-Lima Middle School.
Noah was nominated by his grandmother who founded the Kade Project, a non-profit that helps support people in need in the Honeoye Falls and Mendon communities.
Noah has been involved with nearly every event or fundraiser held within the Kade Project since he was four years old. He especially loves the Toys for Tots fundraiser. Also this past year, Noah participated in a fundraiser to benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a charity dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research. He raised over $550 for this cause by having his head shaved.
The “Do the Right Thing” awards, organized by the Rochester Police Department since 1995, recognizes students for their courage, kindness, heroism, leadership, or other attributes.
