Merrimack bus drivers help raise ovarian cancer awareness

On Sunday, Sept. 13, Student Transportation of America school bus drivers in Merrimack joined their local chapter of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition for its 10th annual Run/Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer at Greeley Park in Nashua.

This is the largest fundraiser and awareness event for the coalition.

The Merrimack team raised nearly $1,900 through cash donations and yard sales, which was matched by Student Transportation of America.

"It was a great day for all involved," said Cheryl Cabral, a member of STA’s Merrimack team. "Encouragement for each other and camaraderie were both present."
