Dozens participate in bone marrow drive at RIT

Dozens of people in our community have agreed to be lifesavers. They participated in a bone marrow drive Wednesday at RIT. 

Entering the national registry usually costs $100, but Gates Automotive and a Webster charity called "Christopher's Challenger" absorbed the cost to encourage people to sign up.

The drive was in honor of six-year-old Logan Parker, who is currently battling leukemia.

Being on the registry means you could be matched with anyone in the world. Organizers describe how difficult and reward it can be to find a patient's match.
   
Kathy Costello, Christopher's Challenge, said, "It's long odds but when you're a patient and you don't have a sibling which is your best match, you hope someone somewhere is a match for you."

School bus slides off road in Webster

Nearly two dozen students were aboard a Webster school bus that slid off the road Wednesday morning. It happened just before 9 a.m. on Monroe-Wayne County Line Road.

The school bus was on its way to Schlegel Road Elementary School, when it slid off the road into a ditch. No one was hurt and police tell News10NBC the weather was a factor.

A tow truck had to be called to help the bus out of the ditch. The students were taken to a group home to wait for transportation. Some students were picked up by parents and others were picked up by another bus and taken to school.

News10NBC asked the District why they didn’t close schools today and they said at that time, there was no snow and conditions did not lend themselves to closing. School officials say this was an isolated incident with unforeseen snow bursts.
