The cheer team of Rock Canyon High School (RCHS) came together August 5 to volunteer at the Food Bank of the Rockies for their annual volunteer event. Coach Amanda Mundaca said, “So often, our three cheer teams practice separately, so they get to spend little time together as a program. Food Bank of the Rockies is an incredible organization that allows our program to help those in need as well as come together and bond as a program.” The team met in Denver at the Food Bank headquarters, then organized and sorted through more than 10,000 pounds of food.
Kelsey Young, a senior captain on the team and a Castle Pines resident said, “A highlight for me was when we were told that we had boxed enough meals for 8,200 families. The team and I really look forward to doing this every year, and it is something we all enjoy.”
