Triadelphia Middle students donate to ‘A Special Wish’


Students at Triadelphia Middle School are helping wishes come true through their “REACH” organization.

Reach stands for Raiders Extending A Caring Hand.

It's a community outreach group, and this year students wanted to donate to the ‘A Special Wish’ organization of the upper Ohio Valley.

They help children battling cancer and other diseases.

The students held a "mad dash for cash" event and raised $850.

Seventh grade teacher Erica Alexander says donating to A Special Wish had a deeper meaning for her this year because her son was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

“All he has ever wanted to do is go to Disney, and we were unable to do that financially because of cancer treatments, and A Special Wish stepped in and our granting his wish,” Alexander said.

The students raised the money in September by holding “Crazy Dress Days.”
