On May 13, elementary and middle schools throughout the district were
visited by former Northport teacher and ALS survivor Chris Pendergast.
Mr. Pendergast is remarkable and tenacious individual who has dedicated
his life to helping raise awareness for the ALS cause and to one day
find a cure.
Thanks to the generosity and large hearts of the Northport-East
Northport community, schools were able to present Mr. Pendergast with
checks to help fund his participation in “Ride for Life.” As he rode
past, students cheered him on, wishing him a safe and successful journey
on his ride.
