Burlington kids hold bake sale for NYC

Posted: Updated:

New York's canceled Marathon inspired a few local children to take a bite out of a different challenge. These Burlington youngsters thought they would be cheering on racers today.

When Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced the late cancellation, young Libby Westbrook and her friends came up with a new plan, a bake sale.

 "Since we couldn't go to New York because of the hurricane we thought to help the hurricane would be better." said Westbrook.

The crew bought a few gallons of cider and boxes of donuts. They hope to raise a hundred dollars or so today and plan on giving the cash to the Red Cross to help with the Sandy relief effort.
