CLEARFIELD – Creative incentives helped Clearfield High students far exceed their fundraising goal this year.

Students could pay to see their coaches learn to hula or a few teachers get their legs waxed or heads shaved. They could donate to win donuts or as a way to vote for performers in a talent show.

Students were invited to donate during Miracle Minutes at basketball games and concerts, knowing that if enough money was raised, they would be treated to a two-hour assembly before winter break and the promise of no homework.

And donate they did, far exceeding their goal of $13,000. In fact, students at the school raised $20,292.94 in their annual holiday fundraiser.

This year, the Make-A-Wish Foundation is the chosen recipient for the annual fundraiser. 

At their culminating assembly, students were introduced to Brynlee, whose wish they hope will come true as a result of their efforts.

Brynlee has neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer that can start in the adrenal glands of young children.

The 3-year-old has a wish of going to a Disney resort and meeting all the Disney princesses, “because she is a true princess,” said Madison DeHart, the student body officer over publicity.

Funds raised in last year’s Falcons Are Fabulous fundraiser went to support the Wounded Warrior Project. 

The fundraisers are a way to help people in need, said Madison. They also help the approximately 1,600 students at CHS become more united as a school, she said.

The school’s mission, according to its website, emphasizes not only rigor and relevance, but relationships.
