YONKERS - Yonkers elementary school students walked Friday to raise money for children with cancer.

About 500 students at Paideia School 15  in Yonkers laced up their sneakers for the second annual walk to support The Ronald McDonald House. The charity provides a home away from home for children with cancer and their families.

Last year, the walk raised $13,000 and this year, organizers are looking to raise $20,000.

After the fundraiser, the students and their families enjoyed the schools' carnival. All money raised from the ring toss will go to the charity as well.
