Teamsters Local 25 President Sean O’Brien recently jogged with children at Boston Higashi School in Randolph as he announced a donation of $15,000 to the school that teaches children in the autistic spectrum.
The school, whose students range in age from 5 to 22, uses a therapeutic educational program based on physical stamina-building, emotional stability, and intellectual stimulation. Students begin each morning with a jog.
O’Brien said the school is giving its students a chance at a better quality of life, and he said his union is “proud to support this school and its worthwhile mission.”
The Teamsters local, which has a membership of about 11,500, has raised $4 million for autism research, education, and awareness in the past 10 years.Elaine Cushman Carroll can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
