Participating will be students from Berkeley Glenn Elementary School, Wenonah Elementary School, Westwood Hills Elementary School, William Perry Elementary School and Kate Collins Middle School.

The event has been organized by a broad partnership that includes Waynesboro Public Schools, Augusta Health, the Office on Youth, the Waynesboro YMCA, and the City of Waynesboro and its Planning Department, Police Department, Fire Department, Parks and Recreation Department School Board and City Council.
