Jonathan Sarisky, a sixth-grader at Livingston's Sleeping Giant Middle School has given the best example of self-discipline and conviction. The 11-year old has won a $500 prize from his parents by restraining from sugary drinks for 365 days. The boy was given a choice to give up soda and all sugary beverages on Christmas Eve last year.
The choice was offered to Jonathan and his older brother Andrew. Either they can get $100 on spot or give up soda for an entire year and win $500.
