Plymouth Meeting teenager raised $1,725 to feed hospital workers

FOX29 has an article today on Plymouth Meeting resident and Plymouth Whitemarsh High School student Regent Walden. Walden recently completed a running series that raised $1,225. He used the money to buy pizza for workers at Chestnut Hill Hospital.

Walden, who runs track at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School, had his track season canceled due to the pandemic. He ran 30 miles over eight days in recognition of Autism Awareness Month.

The pizza was from Cosimo’s Pizza Cafe in Chestnut Hill. The owner of Cosimo’s added $500 to Walden’s $1,225, so they were able to deliver a lot of pizzas to the hospital.

Below is a video made by Walden that features him and his mother discussing the fundraising project.
