In an effort to help those in need, members of the Mountain View High School Key Club participated in this year’s AIDS Project Los Angeles AIDS Walk.  The 21 students each walked four miles and raised about $100 dollars for AIDS research.

“Mountain View High School Key Club members Jenny Nguyen, David Tran and Emily To were all instrumental in helping me organize our participation,” said teacher Michael Weller.  “Teachers Anne Bazile and Geoffrey Bolen generously contributed their time by transporting students and helping me supervise.”

Ordinarily the walk is 6.2 miles, but according to Weller, it was shortened this year to four miles because of street closures caused by the trek of space shuttle Endeavour.

“Once again, Mountain View High School students support others by volunteering their time and raising money to help those in need,” said principal Keith Wheeler.
