Mary Lynn Wallen of Power Middle School, Samantha Mackinder of Farmington High School, and Team Farmington coach Theresa Gallivan of East Middle School, braved the 35 degree weather to raise almost $1,000 for Team Farmington Special Olympics athletes and support of the program.

“My hope is that next year, we will have many FPS staff involved,” Gallivan said in a press release. “It was a really fun activity and a great way to give back to the community.”
