Northport Participates in Community Initiative to Fight Sickle Cell Disease!

Northport VPK-8 School Community, along with Northport ESE instructor, Marie Solide is proud to invite our entire community to participate in a 5K Walk/Run to benefit “Tough Kookie Foundation, Inc.” Tough Kookie, was founded last year with lots of work by Mrs. Solide who lost her beloved daughter, Kookie to Sickle Cell Disease. Northport administrators, teachers, students and parents have been behind Marie in her healing process and her building of this wonderful community support group and sanctioned 501c. The 5K run is sponsored by Tough Kookie Inc. as well as the City of Port Saint Lucie and Healthy Saint Lucie. At Northport VPK-8 School, we realized that many of our families have been touched by this disease and we, as a community partner, want to help be a part of the solution. Please consider joining us at Tradition Square on Saturday, September 26 from 8:00am until 12 Noon.
