Friday, April 28, 2023
The River View High School NIKE Club donated $363.50 to Genesis HealthCare System for the Genesis Cancer Care Center. The money was raised by NIKE Club students selling donuts and hot chocolate in the high school. The fundraiser was organized by Adara Birkhimer, a junior at River View and member of the NIKE Club, which is a group of female students who support and empower each other.
“We are grateful for the River View NIKE Club’s donation that will be used toward patients’ supplies,” said Pebbles Thornton, Director of Genesis Cancer, Palliative Medicine and Hospice Services. “It is inspiring to see students who care about cancer patients have the initiative and dedication to raise the funds.”
