NOW: South Bend students raised money for children’s hospital

SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Students involved in the South Bend Police C.H.A.S.E. program at LaSalle Academy presented a check Tuesday, June 6th to Riley’s Children’s Hospital.

The students who participated in the program helped raise money all year long for Riley’s Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis by taking part in quite a few different fundraisers.

The check they presented was worth close to $600 and was a result of all their effort and hard work.

The C.H.A.S.E. Program was created by the schools Resource Officer Britton Odle.

The program focuses on improving student’s health by boosting their self-esteem and confidence.

“I'm glad that these girls are feeling like they're a part of something and that they can give back to the community and in this case help other kids,” said Resource Officer Odle.

The students said they feel pretty good about themselves when they do something to help others.
