Lakewood High School challenges students across country to raise money for Colorado flood victims
Last Updated: 50 days ago
LAKEWOOD, Colo. - While Lakewood High School's Katy Perry concert next week won't be an official fundraiser for Colorado flood relief, the school's student body president still wants to make sure flood victims get help.
"We want to challenge all the high schools in America to raise $1,000 for the flood victims," said Courtney Coddington, student body president.
With 39,000 high school across the country, Coddington is hoping the idea will bring in big money to help flood victims.
Columbine High School's principal told 7NEWS that school is ready to get involved.
While the concert is being performed for Lakewood High School students, organizers are planning to invite the student body president, and one guest, from each high school in Jefferson County. That goes with the theme of the concert, "One World, One Roar."
Lakewood High School's mascot is the Tiger. They won the Katy Perry concert contest by performing a lip dub of Perry's song, "Roar."
