Rolling Hills elementary ends successful Team Kids Challenge with a carnival
By Steven Georges and Greg Hardesty-Behind the Badge
Four weeks of students competing against each other in such activities as collecting food and clothing culminated May 21 with a carnival, marking a successful end to the first-ever Team Kids Challenge at a Fullerton school.
Team Kids is an Irvine-based non-profit that runs youth-led school- and community-based service programs that are based on prevention research from the Search Institute to promote positive outcomes for kids, while preventing high-risk behaviors.
Rolling Hills Elementary became the first school in Fullerton to partner up with Team Kids, which has been running programs at schools since 2001. The Team Kids Challenge was held in partnership with the Fullerton Police and Fullerton Fire departments, with all of the proceeds benefiting research into cystic fibrosis.
