BUFFALO — Superheroes are real and those who call Union County home were honored earlier this month by students and staff of Buffalo Elementary School with an event that also raised more than $100 for a good cause.

In a statement released this past Friday, Buffalo Elementary School announced that it held its “Spring Walk At School Day” on Wednesday, March 8 in honor “our local Community Leaders” who the press also calls “our Real Super Heroes.”

The press release states that the entire school from 5K through the 5th grade walked three times around the school and its playground with many of those participating dress up in Community Leader outfits.

It further states that “our students and staff are required to do this two times a year for the Safe Routes to School Transportation Team to keep our school in good standing and to receive the Silver Status Award each year.”

For March 8 walk, the press release states “we had our local Buffalo Fire Department bring two big fire trucks in and sound off flashing lights and sirens at the start of the walk while the students walked three times around the school. Also, Mr. Jeff Lawson with the (Union) County Sheriff’s Office brought his cop car and flashed his lights and sirens as well. As the students were walking around and holding up signs, the firefighters and Mr. Lawson gave many of the students high fives and smiles.”

In addition to honoring the local Community Leaders/Realy Super Heroes, the press release states the school added walking for the cause of the American Heart Association to this year’s event. It states that as a result more than $100 was raised for the American Heart Association.
