In Virginia Beach, First Colonial High School Sunshine Nobleteens Club hit the boardwalk for Josh Thompson over the weekend.

The JT Walk is held every year to benefit ALS. More than $1.5 million was raised for the walk. This was a great cause for a former Virginia Beach student. The theme for First Colonial’s Homecoming is ‘Colors for a Cause’. Each class has chosen a specific charity to raise money and awareness. Halls are decorated in the themes of each cause and the floats will parade in honor of the causes.
