Haley Rundorff, a 10-year-old student at Terrace Park School, had a mission. Her aunt, Elaine Ponton, has multiple sclerosis, so Haley decided to support her by making and selling earrings to raise money to benefit others with MS.

Haley collected $362 from her jewelry sales and presented a cashier’s check in the amount of $362 to Bill Brayer, president of MS Helping Hands, at the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast on Wednesday.

According to Brayer. 100 percent of the $362 donation will be used to help provide financial assistance grants to people with MS who live in Washington state. MSHH has awarded over $300,000 in financial assistance grants since the assistance program began.

If you would like to donate to the MSHH financial assistance fund, send your donation to MSHH, Financial Assistance Fund, 9792 Edmonds Way #229, Edmonds, WA 98020.

  5. This is wonderful Haley! Your altruistic efforts set such a great example for kids in your community. I try to instill those values in the 4th grade students I teach, and you are taking a leadership role at a young age. Keep up the great work! Your parent’s friend, Keith
