Another person who was inspired by Captain Tom Moore is walking for charity.  A 103-year-old retired doctor in Belgium is walking a marathon in his yard this month.  He started June 1st . . . walks just under a mile a day . . . and is on pace to finish his 26.2 miles on June 30th.  All the money he raises will go to support coronavirus research.

Students in the class of 2020 at a Canadian high school used money they raised for a graduation celebration to help others. Seniors at A.E. MacNeill Secondary School in Richmond, British Columbia, took a vote on what to do with the $2-thousand they raised. They decided to donate it all to a local hospital.
