CRE raises over $3000 for Wish Week 2018!
This January, CRE is joining forces with other Douglas County High School feeder schools and the Make-A-Wish Foundation to participate in Wish Week from January 22-26. The Make-A-Wish Foundation helps provide trips for children with a life threatening medical condition or terminal illness diagnosis. Each year during Wish Week, DCHS and their feeder schools sponsor a child to fund their Make-A-Wish trip. This year, DCHS feeder schools have sponsored Caleb, a 5 year old boy with T-Cell leukemia. Caleb's dream is to go on a Marvel cruise because he loves superheroes!
CRE's Wish Week activities brought in a total donation of $3008.54! Combined with the rest of the DCHS community, a grand total of $47,000 was raised! Not only did the community raise enough money for Caleb to have his wish granted, enough money was raised for 7 ADDITIONAL wishes will be granted!
