Bishop Kearney Student Council sponsored a "Kearney for Kaitlyn" fundraising event. The school community was asked to dress-up for the day and make a donation to help their freshman sister, Kaitlyn, who is battling cancer. At the Pep Rally, Katie O’Dea, Freshman Student Council President, presented a check to Kaitlyn from the student body. She said, "The determination and persistence you have demonstrated over these last few months has been nothing short of spectacular. Your actions have taught all of us here today that no obstacle is too mighty to conquer through faith and with support from loved ones. With the support of all of your loved ones and all of us here at Kearney I know that your recovery will be speedy. In the meantime we will continue to pray for your rapid return to health."
