Cunningham Elementary School kicked-off a new fundraising project on Friday with just a few pennies. The school hopes those few pennies will grow into one million pennies by the end of the year during their Million Penny Challenge.

The fundraiser will run year-round in an effort to collect a million pennies - $10,000 - to benefit programs for the entire school, with a focus on outdoor education for the sixth graders.
