Pedalling to make brain tumors history

Tucked behind those shades is another Hemenway warrior.

As any of her past and present 5th grade students can attest, one of Ms. Nolan's favorite subjects is History. So it is no surprise that she puts her all, one pedal at a time, towards making brain tumors a thing of the past.

Inspired by her brother, Brian's fight and ultimate win over GBM, an aggressive type of brain tumor, she is leading the mighty Whatevros for B.A.S team for a second time in the Boston Brain Tumor Ride.

Making the World a Better Place

Ms. Perry, whether she is in her classroom, or walking the miles of the Avon Breast Cancer walk, always manages to make the world a better place. She, like so many other Hemenway teachers and staff could have Caring for a middle name and it would be so true.

Last year was her first Breast Cancer walk, and this year she is at it again with her team mate Ms. Beck. Care to help her along? Click here.
