Lydiksen kicks off wheelchair fund raiser

Lydiksen held its kick-off assembly on Friday, Jan. 29 for the 4th annual wheelchair fund raiser in collaboration with the nonprofit  Wheelchair Foundation. The fund raiser will run through the end of February. Last year Lydiksen raised enough money to send 99 wheelchairs to Peru. This year we are raising money to help people in Ecuador. Ask your child how he/she could raise money - having a lemonade stand, doing extra chores at home, mowing the neighbor’s lawn, donating piggy bank money. We are hoping that through their fund-raising efforts, our Lydiksen students will understand and feel the impact they have on creating a better world one wheelchair at a time! Here are short videos of Lydiksen's impact on Honduras in 2014 and on Peru last summer!
