Hundreds of students took part in the inaugural Great Parkway Pig Race at Parkway School in Greenwich Monday.
"Pigs are just fun to watch," Student President Dylan Mootabar said. "They move and then they stop, and then they move so it's building suspense along the way."
Proceeds from the event benefitted the Jonah Finn foundation, which funds scientific research dedicated to finding cures for rare and aggressive childhood brain cancers.
"The foundation is named in the legacy of Jonah Finn Amor," says Michelle O'Brien. "Who was diagnosed at a very early age with ETMR which is a very rare and aggressive brain cancer."
Local Greenwich businesses donated raffle prizes for the cause.
"Our kids are incredible," Parkway School Principal Mary Grandville says. "They're always looking for ways to better the lives of other people, even if it's just holding a door for a friend or walking a child who's not feeling well to the nurse. They're always looking for ways where they can pitch in and help and serve. That's what it's all about"
Organizers say they want to continue the event next year.
