For our leadership project, we decided to do a fundraiser for Make A Wish called Brave The Bay. All participants had to pay to participate and the event had sponsors such as Subaru and Ghiradelli which donated money. We helped raise $50,000 and each wish cost about $10,000 so we were able to grant five wishes. The San Francisco police department hosted the event along with Make A Wish.
We helped staff the Snowflake shuffle which is a 5k run in San Francisco. It begins and ends in the Aquatic Park. Volunteers had to arrive at 7:30 so that we could get in our positions to lead the runners in the right direction. The participants started to run at around 9 am. The Snowflake shuffle ended around 12.
That was our project and we were glad to grant wishes to those in need.
