Make a Difference - Kids for Wish Kids® Fundraising Program

Are you looking for a way to make a difference?

Kids for Wish Kids is a branch within the Make-A-Wish Foundation that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. This program is managed by students, who are responsible for the fundraising efforts and coordination.

Last year, students from Rock Canyon High School, in nearby Douglas County, Colorado launched a fundraising program for Kids for Wish Kids. Rock Canyon High School’s fundraising efforts totaled over $40,000 in donations, and broke the national record for donations to the Kids for Wish Kids program by a high school. This donation amount granted NINE wishes for kids!

OCI is proud to sponsor Rock Canyon High School’s Kids for Wish Kids for the second year in a row.

“We are proud to once again contribute as a sponsor to this worthy cause that the students of Rock Canyon High School have such incredible energy in supporting”, said Archie Anderson, OCI’s President. “As a father of Rock Canyon High School students, it is a joy to observe how enthusiastic these kids are in raising money for the wish kids. As a business leader, it’s just one small thing that we can do to contribute back to the communities in which my OCI colleagues and I live and work.”

Rock Canyon’s Wish Week dates are February 17-24. If you would like to contribute, please email Katherine Hartline at katherine.hartline@dcsdk12.org
