Suffolk University Students Run to Help North End School Suffolk University will put its best foot forward when it hosts the inaugural "Stam- pede into Spring Break Fun Run" around the Boston Common at 12:30 p.m., Sun- day, March 6, 2011, to help raise money for much- needed school supplies for the Eliot School in the North End. Suffolk students, alumni and other participants will run, skip or walk twice around the Boston Common, each step helping to pro- vide young learners with the necessary tools re- quired to receive a proper education. Recent economic condi- tions have impacted schools throughout the country, and the Eliot School, the only public school in the North End, is no different. As a result, Eliot families have volunteered to help contrib- ute to the school's supply inventory. With its commitment to making a difference to people in the community, Suffolk University, led by its student body, is spearhead- ing this fund-raising effort. Members of the Suffolk com- munity, as well as a team of students, teachers and par- ents representing the Eliot School, will participate in the Fun Run. "I am proud that our stu- dents are launching our first annual 'Stampede into Spring Break Fun Run' in support of our good neighbor -- the Eliot School in the North End," said Suffolk University Acting President and Provost Barry Brown. "Community involvement is as integral to our mission as is access to education." Eliot School Principal Traci Walker Griffith is de- lighted that the University's students have taken the initiative in putting the Fun Run event together for the benefit of her young learners. "With this event, Suffolk University students are sending such a positive message about the impor- tance of giving back to the community," said Griffith. "It's a completely energized atmosphere of older students helping younger students. We at the Eliot School are very appreciative of our relationship with Suffolk and how the University is always ready to lend a help- ing hand." Griffith is hoping that donations generated by the Fun Run will cover school supplies for the 2011-2012 school year. "Every little bit helps," she said. "We can use everything -- paper, number two pen- cils, calculators, staplers, crayons, markers and so on. It's all going to help young and ambitious students who are our future."
