Haverford Middle School students hosted their first HOPE Olympics from March 13th-17th. The HOPE Olympics were a week long competition devoted to helping local families with cancer centered around service, competition, spirit and most importantly, fun. The week was lead by peer leaders, the Gold Team, that encouraged their friends to make a difference and get involved. The faculty and administration played a crucial role in the organization and success of the event.
For the past month, HMS students have been raising money to help local families with cancer. Students raised money through homeroom competitions and peer-to-peer fundraising events. They have raised over $59,000 for families in their area.
“I am consistently impressed with the creativity and energy of all students in the School Program. I am especially proud and impressed by the enthusiasm and Haverford Middle School’s accomplishment especially the principle, staff, and students. Everyone locked in to help families with cancer in their area and it came through with fun, excitement and joyful awesomeness. “
-Paul Isenburg, Bringing Hope Home CEO and Founder
Students heard from a BHH family to kick off the fundraising event. It was great for the students to hear what BHH means to them.
