Hey everyone and welcome to the start of Highland Park High School’s 2017 Charity Drive! This year, the students and staff of HPHS collectively chose the Zacharias Sexual Abuse Center (ZCenter) to be the recipient of our fundraising.
ZCenter is a local nonprofit that runs two facilities for survivors seeking refuge, help, guidance, therapy, amongst many other resources. They also run an 24/7 anonymous hotline for any sexual assault survivors and they provide educational courses on how to properly communicate consent between partners. Sexual assault is a troubling yet widespread issue in not just our community but all over the world. 1 in 3 women will encounter a form of sexual assault and 1 in 7 men will. This issue affects us all.
Our annual 24 Hour Run is back and this year will take place on February 17-18 from 9:00am to 9:00am. We invite all students and staff of HPHS, community members, alumni, parents, friends, coaches, and anyone at all to join us on the indoor track for the momentous event. Additionally, our goal is to raise $35,000. Last year we fundraised $30,116. All members of the HPHS boys and girls track teams are collecting donations in the form of cash or checks. Checks can be made out to Highland Park High School. To our followers from far away, please donate online through our paypal! Click the Donate tab in the menu above, or click here.
We hope to see all of you at the event and look forward to having your help surpass $35,000 for the 2017 24 Hour Run! Thanks!
