Lynn School Committeeman raising scholarship funds with virtual marathon

LYNN — School Committee member Brian Castellanos is making strides toward providing some "redemption" for Class of 2020 seniors who are missing out on their year-end celebrations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Castellanos, 30, said hearing from disappointed seniors prompted him to organize a fundraising campaign for the Class of 2020, which will culminate with him running a virtual marathon next month. 

He's aiming to raise $10,000. That amount would enable him, through a partnership with the Lynn Business Education Foundation, to provide 40 high school seniors with $250 college scholarships.
