Cystic fibrosis fundraiser
This is the second year National Honor Society students partnered with Team “Saving Grace” (Cystic Fibrosis Foundation) in a six-week challenge, raising more than $5,200.
Last year, four schools participated; this year all six of Salisbury-Rowan’s high schools participated to help raise awareness of cystic fibrosis and to raise money to fund needed research.
Team “Saving Grace” formed four years ago in honor of now 7-year-old Grace Hodge of Mount Ulla. The team challenged each area high school’s National Honor Society to participate in this fundraising event. The challenge was to see how many pin-ups they could sell and which NHS raised the most money per student.
Team “Saving Grace” offered the NHS selling the most pin-ups a barbecue luncheon to celebrate their success. West Rowan’s National Honor Society students raised the most money per student ó $12.87. West’s NHS officers voted unanimously to decline the lunch and to donated to the money to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Sponsors of this event are Bill Godley, Godley’s Garden Center & Nursery; John Jancic, Mid-State Metals of the Carolinas; and Greg Edds,State Farm Insurance.
Team “Saving Grace” would like to thank and congratulate all the students who participated.
