Woodlands Academy junior Lauren Hermsen and her 140-member “Lauren’s Walkers” were the largest family team to participate recently in the 31st Annual Ron Santo Walk to Cure Diabetes. Among Hermsen’s most enthusiastic teammates were Woodlands' Wellness and Boarding School Coordinator Marsha Marko and dozens of Woodlands students sporting “Lauren’s Walkers” T-shirts who showed up to demonstrate their support.

This is the 14th year that Hermsen’s family has organized a team for the annual event, and their efforts over the years have yielded nearly $400,000.
