Doernbecher Days


QUICKLINK: Doernbecher Dash Registration Form

As Vernonia High School's ASB President, I am challenging my school and community to raise money for the Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The leadership class and I will be hosting several fundraising events/activities during the week of April  2013 for Doernbecher. Please help me support this cause, and all the children at Doernbecher in need of our help.
