Baldwinsville St. Mary's Academy students dress down for a cause.
The students and teachers are raising money for AVM, a rare and life-threatening condition that causes abnormal blood vessel growth. This cause is personal for the students at St. Mary's Academy as Kelleigh Gustafson, a junior at Bishop Grimes Prep, is affected by this disease.
"When someone from one of our sister schools needs our help, our students rise to the occasion,” said Principal Renae Henderson.
The students purchased T-shirts, bracelets and paid $2 to "dress down." The students raised $635 for "Kelleigh's Cause" to fund research for this terrible disease.
