During lunch on Wednesday, April 26, 2011, a group of students dedicated their time and energy to sell hand-decorated headbands in an effort to raise money for a water purification system. Among the students were sophomores Nicollette Barreras, Olivia Boesing, Amy Winders, and juniors Emily Engle and Haley Hisle.
“We’re raising enough money to buy a water purification system in Africa. So far we’ve raised $500,” said Barreras.
Headbands cost $5 each, and will be sold on Wednesdays and Fridays.
For four hours today FC students participated in its first ever dance marathon, a charity event for Riley’s Children Hospital in Indianapolis. The afternoon was filled with live performances from local bands including Big Acorns Make Fat Squirrels and Identity Crisis, games, crafts, stories from different Riley families, and dancing.
A total of $17,572.44 was raised, more than doubling the original goal of $7,000.
