A.J. Walczak, the 10-year-old student at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament School in Depew, has far surpassed his goal of raising $1,500 for the Ride for Roswell, which was held Saturday. A.J. launched an aggressive fundraising goal, largely to help his mom who is fighting stage 4 breast cancer, and other families, as well.
A.J., who lives in West Seneca but attends the Depew school, had raised $7,950 for the ride, as of Friday morning. Just a week ago, he had raised a little more than $3,000 for the Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
