In May, the Park View Student Council held a charitable donation fundraiser to earn money for the Huntsman Cancer Foundation for cancer research. The hope was to earn $350 in order to receive a paving stone to be added to the Huntsman’s Walk of Hope in honor of Mrs. Walker, the school’s beloved computer technician who passed away this past March from cancer. Students, members of the school community and the Walker family gave generously in support of the fundraiser. After just five days of selling suckers, the council had raked in over $900 to donate to the foundation – nearly tripling their goal.
On June 2nd the student council’s presidency made a trip to the Huntsman Cancer Foundation, where they presented a check to Susan Sheehan, the executive director of the foundation for $936. Ms. Sheehan spent time explaining the importance of what the foundation does with the money donated, and how the school’s donation will be put to good work in helping to find a cure for cancer.
