Some little feet took some big steps for a good cause Wednesday morning in Greenwood.
Noah’s Ark Preschool, which is housed at First Presbyterian Church on East Cambridge Avenue,  hosted its annual charity walk Wednesday.  The walk was a culmination of a fundraising campaign by the students in which more than $2,000 was raised for the American Cancer Society.


The walk and donations to the American Cancer Society were done in honor of three women with ties to Noah’s Ark who have suffered from cancer. The honorees were Traci Pruitt, a former teacher at Noah’s Ark, Margaret Funke, whose children attended Noah’s Ark, and Gina Ballentine, whose daughters currently attend Noah’s Ark.
Noah’s Ark principal Martha Ann Davis was all smiles as she spoke with students,  parents and friends after the walk. She said she was pleased more than $2,000 was raised for the American Cancer Society.
