“It works!” yells Liam Foster, a seventh-grader at The Liberty School, as he and his two co-pilots successfully squeeze into “The Sardine Can,” the name they gave to their cardboard sled, on Saturday morning at Chapman Hill. Organizer Katie Cashette said eight teams collected sponsorship money and paid entry fees to compete in the homemade sled race, with proceeds going to help educate children in the Sudan through the Darfur Dream Team Sister Schools Program. Assisting Liam at left is fourth-grader Chris Atchison, son of Scott and Cindy Atchison. Liam is the son of Pete and Nancy Foster. Enlarge photo
