Corner Canyon High School stopped at nothing to raise money for the Tyler Robinson Foundation. Every year, this high school highlights a non-profit to donate money to for an entire month.
Fighting Pediatric Cancer
“Everyone was saying something feels different about this year” – Gabe (Student Body Officer)
This wasn’t your typical fundraiser. Corner Canyon High went above and beyond with creative and unique ways to have their students donate money.
They had a series of odd jobs, a spike ball tournament, a rock paper scissors tournament, a Super Smash Bros tournament, and a ping pong tournament all to generate excitement and donations for the Tyler Robinson Foundation.
“To me it’s nothing short of a miracle that we had help” – Gabe
These students wanted to make a difference and knew that anything could be accomplished if they worked hard and set their minds to it.
The Final Numbers
“This year we didn’t announce any totals, we said here’s our goal, you’ll find out at the assembly” – Jana (Student Government Advisor)
After several weeks of fundraising constantly, no one knew the total amount that they had raised. Which, kept the suspense building even more (and the teacher behind this, Jana, knew it).
Finally, the end of their charity month was coming to an end and it was time to find out how much they had raised for pediatric cancer. During a whole school assembly, some of the students were given poster board to write numbers on.
One by one, they lifted up their poster board to reveal their total amount. Over $77,000 was raised by Corner Canyon High School for the Tyler Robinson Foundation.
“Finally seeing those final numbers, at that moment, it was everything for me” – Gabe
The student body erupted into cheers and embraces as their hard work to fight pediatric cancer had definitely paid off in the biggest way possible.
“For high school students, the sky is the limit” – Jana
“Even though we don’t know these families personally, we’re here for them” – Gabe
