Students raise funds for kids
On Nov. 23, for the fourth consecutive year, Kenston High School students were “locked” into the school for a night of dancing and games and the challenge of no sitting between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. during their fundraiser event for the nonprofit, A Kid Again. Students raised funds and in-kind donations leading up to the event, which have totaled $11,000 since 2017. This year’s goal was $20,000, and the students raised $20,063.
A Kid Again serves children with life-threatening conditions by providing consistent, cost-free activities that create meaningful shared experiences and joy-filled memories for parents, siblings and the child facing health issues.
