Denton Avenue Students Raise $3,200 for Ryan's Well Fundraiser

Denton Avenue Students Raise $3,200 for Ryan's Well Fundraiser

When Ryan Hreljac was a six-year-old Canadian boy, he raised money to build a well for clean drinking water in Uganda.  Now as a young adult he founded Ryan’s Well, a not-for-profit organization that continues his efforts.

The students at Denton Avenue learned about Ryan and fund-raised to build a well in Burkina Faso, Africa and to provide money to sustain the well. Ryan drove from Canada to Long Island to visit Denton Avenue School to accept a check for $3,200.  Ryan was very appreciative of the students’ advocacy toward this global issue and their enthusiasm for this project.
