DeForest and Waunakee students raise $6,000 for JDRF

The Waunkee and DeForest High School Student Councils teamed up to raise nearly $6,000 to support the fight against Juvenile Diabetes. On Friday, January 6 students hosted Pack the Gym Night at DAHS, where the boys and girls varsity basketball teams from each school played on the same night.

Students held several fundraising activities to support the event. In addition to soliciting monetary pledges from local businesses for every point scored by their home team, students at both schools sponsored t-shirt sales, bake sales, “Miracle Minute” collections, and “Chuck a Duck” contests. Waunakee also sponsored a dance on Saturday to raise funds.
