Make-A-Wish Week – March 13-17

Posted March 9, 2023

March 13 – 17 is WISH WEEK!

WHAT: North is collaborating with South High School to put on this year’s Wish Week to fundraise for Make-A-Wish Colorado. Make-A-Wish grants life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. More than 150 Colorado schools participate in the life-changing “Kids for Wish Kids” program, and during the 2022 school year, helped raise over $975,000 to grant 120+ wishes. North is incredibly excited to continue to grow this number to change lives!

WHO: This year, North has the honor of working with Make-A-Wish to grant 10-year-old Marilyn a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the opportunity to meet the cast of her favorite TV show. Marilyn lives in Westminster and is bravely battling cystic fibrosis. We would love to be a part of Marilyn’s wish coming true! 

HOW: North High  is collaborating with South High, local businesses, and our community to fundraise and reach our goal of $7,500 to make Marilyn’s wish come true.
