Benton Grade School's fifth- through eighth-grade math students have raised more than $7,600 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital during their participation in the 2018 Math-A-Thon.
The students complete the math funbook and obtain sponsors to donate to St. Jude. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is working to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
