The money will help students in central louisiana with medicine, eyeglasses, x-rays and other things not covered by insurance.  

"The walk began five years ago as a result of a need for children that have to get glasses, see the dentist, and don't have the funds to pay for that, don't have the insurance coverage and we wanted to help them," Denise Laborde, a school-based health center worker , said.

The students at Glenmora raised $2000 at Wednesday's walkathon.
