Ken-Ton School Sleep-Out carries on despite bitter cold

Annual Ken-Ton School Sleep-Out carries on despite bitter temperatures


Tonawanda News — Ash also has plans for the future, including school satellite sleep-out stations and, ultimately, a world day of school sharing. He’s hoping to get Gov. Andrew Cuomo to permanently proclaim the first Friday in February as such an event, then expand it to the United States and even the world.

“We’re hoping for it,” he said. “If we’re anything, we’re steadfast. 

“There’s no limit on the number of good things responsible adults can offer kids to do. This isn’t a cure all for everything, but it’s a positive activity kids can get involved in.”

For more information on the event, call 694-4492.
