Christian Life Academy high school students raised money for a program that will benefit people outside their school, and they succeeded beyond their expectations.
The 22 students raised $13,665, enough to pay for about 488 ultrasounds through Pre-Born, a national Christian organization that partners with clinics to provide ultrasounds to expectant mothers.
Weaver said the students didn’t have a target set for how much money they were trying to raise, and the amount they did raise astounded them.
Weaver said Pre-Born is one of the largest providers of ultrasounds and partners with clinics throughout the country.
“80% of the time when mothers see their ultrasound they choose to keep their babies,” Weaver said.
