An Albemarle County chiropractor offered free services Saturday to raise money to go toward building a school in Haiti.
Doctors at Prax Family Chiropractic performed adjustments and evaluations to help collect donations for the Raise the Roof Haiti team. The group consists of seven high school students and five adults.
Eleventh grader Lauren Ewell started the team after seeing a film about girls around the world who struggle to get an education.
“That made me feel like there's so much need and girls really need to be able to get an education, and I can do something about it, and I can help to make a difference and make a change,” Ewell said.
The group has raised $23,000 so far toward a goal of $35,000.
The Raise the Roof team will travel to Haiti in July to start building a primary school.
