According to Narragansett High School senior Chris Timpson, his senior project to raise money for the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation resulted in about $7,000.
Timpson said the walk on April 7 at the Narragansett High School track had about 200 people. The donation money came from entrance fees and business sponsorships, he said, and after the cost for things like t-shirts, he expected the donation to be about $6,000 to $6,500.
Timpson still has some t-shirts left – If you’re interested in purchasing one, shoot an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sabetti said the lesson focused on occupational therapy, which she hopes to study in college.
