HUNTINGTON, WEST VIRGINIA (WOWK) - Nearly 35 Cedar Grove Middle School students brought out their rocking chairs to rock for a cure.
The event is held each year in honor of a former teacher, Tera Winfree, and in memory of two students, April and Jody Johnson, who lost their lives to Cystic Fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis is an inherited disease that affects approximately 30,000 people in the United States.

Students from Cedar Grove said they enjoy the fun around the event but they understand the seriousness of Cystic Fibrosis.

"I want to be apart of it because it's the right thing to do to raise money for a cure," said Jerrey Anne Jeffries, a student at the school.

"I've known some people that have had it, my brother was a part of it when he went to school and I thought it would be cool if I joined and carried it on," said Jordan Keenan.

This year student raised more than $4,000 that will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
