Hillcrest Elementary School Social Worker Shelli Altopp-Miller and intern Abigail Gross hosted the first Breaking Barriers 5K Walk/Run at the historic downtown Burlington Depot, 200 S. Main St., on Saturday, Nov. 3. Participants were asked to donate hygiene items (lice kits, undergarments, hygiene and laundry products), which social workers will distribute to ABSS students and families in need. This year 31 people signed up and brought items. The event was made possible by an ABSS Community Outreach Mini-Grant, as well as sponsorships and donations from Elon University Health & Wellness, Converge Coffee Bar + Café and Smitty’s Ice Cream.
