The Catholic Charities In-School Social Work Program is hosting Rachel's Challenge today at Notre Dame Academy, including a free presentation open to parents and the community at 6:30 this evening in St. Martin of Tours Church, 1140 Abbott Road, across the street from the school.
Rachel’s Challenge started in memory of the first victim of the 1999 Columbine high school shootings in Colorado, and looks to inspire individuals to turn from violence, bullying and negativity and toward respect, kindness and compassion. The evening presentation will focus on how to inspire, equip and empower children and teens to make lasting, positive change. Several other schools in the region also participate in the challenge.
