A change drive competition between homerooms was organized by the CHS FBLA chapter to contribute to March of Dimes.

“The March of Dimes is a non-profit organization created to fund research to strive for the betterment of the lives of millions of children across America who were prematurely born,” said FBLA adviser Mrs. Kelly Moehn.

Since 1970, FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America) organizations have partnered with March of Dimes to help expand awareness for this cause by holding fundraisers.

Senior Rachel Disher, the FBLA local chapter vice president and local leader of the March of Dimes fundraiser, said, “I love how they support this research cause because there are many members of FBLA across America that have been directly affected by the March of Dimes organization.”

     The competition ended on November 16, and the change was counted the same day. Overall, the school collected $171.72.

Local Chapter President Katelyn Sohrweide, a senior, said, “It means so much to know that I’m helping premature babies have a chance at life.”

     Mrs. Moehn’s homeroom won overall with Mr. Rocky Gozdziewski’s homeroom coming in second. Both earned ice cream treats.

World Prematurity Day was November 17.
