Green River High School has announced their Make-A-Wish Spirit Days events calendar for the 2019 Sweetwater County Make-A-Wish Fundraiser.
The fundraising events began on Thursday, February 7th and will continue through February 21st. This event is a competition between both Green River and Rock Springs High Schools, but overall funds are pooled together to represent Sweetwater County.
The schools participate in a program called Kids for Wish Kids, which encourages high school students to raise money for children who are battling life-threatening medical conditions.
According to Make-A-Wish Wyoming, the program began in Wyoming in the year 2000 with five schools that raised $2,219. Sweetwater County’s high schools became involved with the program in 2004, raising a combined $1,569 that year. Last year, Green River and Rock Springs high schools rose just over $61,000.
All donations will be recognized during the Make-A-Wish announcement at the game between Green River and Rock Springs on February 21st at RSHS.
