“We are raising a ton!”

Athens Charity Week is off to a great start with the week long fundraising activities continuing today.


On Monday, the annual fundraiser kicked off with a delicious pancake breakfast and a generous serving of school spirit. The cafeteria was beautifully decorated with banners, streamers, and colorful tablecloths. Students were dressed for Comfy Day — some in PJ’s, some in robes and slippers.


A cheerful team of greeters welcomed every person who walked into the school. Student council members sold “passports” for unlimited admission to all Charity Week events.

“Everything has been a huge hit and we are raising a ton of money,” said senior Katie Prebelich.

Charity Week continues through Friday, February 10, with a wide variety of fundraising activities. Come back often to School Life Troy for more coverage, and to find out if the Red Hawks can raise $100,000 for the Jenna Kast Believe In Miracles Foundation!

Jenna Kast would have been a senior this year at Athens.  “She passed away when she was 11 from multiple brain tumors throughout her life,”  said senior Nina Como, who was one of Jenna’s close friends growing up.
