LEARN... BELIEVE... DREAM... DARE
On October 7, twenty-three members of Horizon Honors’ chapter of National Honor Society woke up at 4 a.m. on their first day of fall break to volunteer at Run for Ryan House in Mesa.  The members packed bags for runners and walkers, set up the events, kept runners safe on the course, directed traffic and handed out medals to finishers, all to support Ryan House, an amazing organization that embraces children and their families as they navigate life-limiting or end-of-life journeys. The students worked hard all day to support this great cause and we are incredibly proud of their commitment to helping and serving others!
