Woodstone celebrates fellow rider at Race for the cure

Last week, following the first round of STAAR tests, Woodstone Elementary School took time to celebrate their own star—Julie Hamilton.  Julie is currently fighting her own battle with breast cancer.  While she is home recovering, Woodstone wanted to show their love and support.  

A couple of teachers designed a special shirt for the upcoming Komen walk. About 60 people purchased the shirt and supported the cause at school. A team of 25 from Woodstone joined the 25,000 in downtown San Antonio to walk the race with their turquoise shirts emblazoned with Julie’s Jewels on the back of the shirt. 

While the Woodstone team was walking they had some youngsters support the cause in their special way with posters for mom and Julie. "All our prayers and thoughts continue to go out to Julie and all those who are fighting breast cancer during this time," said Sara Romine, librarian at Woodstone.
