Cambridge Middle School eighth grade students Angel Moore, Emma Andres, Destiny Auger, Allie White and Sydney Eaton carried gallon jugs of water for two miles (seven laps around the CMS parking lot) during a June 4 exercise which showed the students how much work people in poorer nations go through for daily water rations. The event was held in support of Our Response, a local non-profit group working to fight extreme poverty in Rwanda, with the students raising dollars for the cause.
