Now through March 2 Cherry Creek High School and the Student Senate will be putting on its 4th annual Wish Week. Every year Creek raises money to be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Wish of a Lifetime foundations.
Half of the money that is raised is used to grant the wish of a suffering child. This year Creek will help grant the wish of 3-year-old Thalia. Thalia suffers from Optic Nerve Glioma. Thalia’s wish is to go to Disney World, and Creek is determined to make that dream come true. Thalia enjoys the color pink, eating lollipops and listening to the music of Justin Bieber. She also loves popcorn, swimming, eating Italian food and playing with her younger sister.
The other half of the money will be donated to the Wish of A Lifetime Foundation, an organization whose goal is to honor those of the older generation by granting their wish. This year, Creek will be raising money to grant LeAnn’s wish. Her wish is to fly in a hot air balloon. Creek’s goal is to make LeAnn’s dream a reality.
The events for the week included Putt-Putt throughout the school on Monday night; a Choir Concert on Tuesday night; a Playoff Basketball game with special guests on Wednesday night; and a Talent Show, on Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. There will be an assembly, Friday, March 1, at 2 p.m. in the CCHS South Gym..
