Lions Challenge Day Donation

The Delavan Lions Club made a commitment to bring back three days that positively impacted the lives of hundreds of Delavan-Darien School District students this spring.

In April, the nationally-known anti-violence, anti-bullying program known as Challenge Day came to Delavan-Darien High School to work with students in grades 7 through 12. Using trained facilitators to lead a variety of activities, the program helps students understand that they are not alone in dealing with life’s struggles, and that support is available to them in many places from many people.

The school district is seeking donations to bring Challenge Day back again during the 2012-13 school year. Members of Delavan Lions Club wanted to see that it would be back, and voted to contribute $3,000 to the cause.

The school district’s ¬†fundraising goal is about $15,000. District officials say they are just over halfway toward meeting that goal.
