Derek Hamil and Zach Ladage are challenging themselves to a 40-mile ruck carrying 40 pounds to raise money for Leader Valley’s Leader in Me program. You are invited to be a part of this unique challenge by donating $40 to Leader Valley in their honor and by joining them for all or part of the 40 miles! With two matching grants available, the $4,000 raised through this fundraiser will become $12,000 to benefit the future of Cedar Valley students and employers.
Leader Valley strives to provide PreK-12 students with the essential employability and leadership skills needed to be successful in the workforce. Through the Leader in Me program, over 11,000 students at 23 Cedar Valley schools have access to this valuable leadership learning. Leader in Me students use Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to set and achieve goals, take ownership of their learning, learn to identify and use their unique talents and gifts, and hold leadership roles. Thanks to the Leader in Me program, our Cedar Valley students will graduate with a competitive edge in whatever path they choose to pursue after high school.
