DuBois, PA – Clearfield Area School District brought in another $4,000 for the 25th Annual Light Up a Child’s Life campaign for Make-A-Wish!

The school sells t-shirts to students and teacher, who then wear them around school and to football games.

Allison Colna is one of the students at Clearfield Elementary. She was diagnosed with ALL, acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Her end of treatment is this March, and she’s been in remission for about two years now.

You can keep updated with how Allison is doing at her Facebook fan page.

Allison’s one true wish was to swim with dolphins, but she got to do much more than just that! She not only swam with dolphins, but she also got to go to Sea World and Disney World for part of her trip!

Allison’s mom, Beth, also teaches 7th and 8th grade special needs classes.

Don Shimmel not only organizes the t-shirt sales for the Clearfield School District, but he’s also a wish dad. His son, Corey, was also diagnosed with ALL 18 years ago. Now he’s doing fine and is actually stationed with the US Army. His wish was to go to Disney World.

Listen to the interview with Lindsey Herzing from Make-a-Wish, Allison, Beth Colna, Don Shimmel, and Superintendent Terry Struble.
