The Run for the Manatees fundraiser benefited the school and zoo.
In February, Lake Magdalene Elementary students, teachers and parents took part in the Run for the Manatees 5K. In addition to getting some great exercise, the school raised funds for new school technology. A portion of funds generated from the run also went to Lowry Park Zoo's manatee zoo. On a recent day, Lake Magdalene students and teachers presented zoo staff with an $800 check from the run. Does your child's school have some great news to share?

Their body shape is similar to a giraffe, but with shorter necks. "We are very pleased with the successful birth, and are delighted that Tampa's Lowry …
