Green River High School has announced their Make-A-Wish Spirit Days events calendar for the 2019 Sweetwater County Make-A-Wish Fundraiser.

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.
