Long Beach Unified School District employees and students recently helped to raise thousands of dollars for the Children's Clinic during the 10th Annual BeachWalk.
A team led by Carl Cohn, superintendent of schools, earned awards for Largest Group Team and Top Fundraising Team. Dr. Cohn's Wave of the Future team of nearly 40 walkers gathered about $2,500. International Elementary School won the award for Largest School Team.
The five-kilometer walk began and ended near Shoreline Drive.
The non-profit Children's Clinic in Long Beach provides health care services to under-served children and their families. Last year, the clinic accommodated more than 31,000 patient visits.
