Denver, Colorado — OCI, a data integration and software services company, has committed to sponsoring Rock Canyon High School’s Kids for Wish Kids fundraising program for the second consecutive year.
Students of Rock Canyon High School in Douglas County, CO. granted nine wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions through last year’s Kids for Wish Kids fundraising program. Rock Canyon High School’s fundraising efforts last year totaled over $40,000 in donations and broke the national record for donations to the Kids for Wish Kids program by a high school.
Kids for Wish Kids is a branch within the Make-A-Wish Foundation that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. Students on its Student Council, who are responsible for the fundraising, manage this program at Rock Canyon High School.
This year, Rock Canyon High School students are fundraising again for the Kids for Wish Kids program and OCI has made its second annual contribution to the cause. OCI is proud to once again sponsor such a deserving program.
“We are proud to once again contribute as a sponsor to this worthy cause that the students of Rock Canyon High School have such incredible energy in supporting”, said Archie Anderson, OCI’s President. “As a father of Rock Canyon High School students, it is a joy to observe how enthusiastic these kids are in raising money for the wish kids. As a business leader, it’s just one small thing that we can do to contribute back to the communities in which my OCI colleagues and I live and work.”
