Random Act of Kid-ness: Local Kids Helping a Classmate in Need

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us all the way from… less than a mile away! When 18 year old Fairfax High student Jose Chojolan became paralyzed from the neck down, his fellow high school classmates stepped in to help. Jose’s family is now faced with incredible medical expenses and an apartment that is not wheelchair accessible. “Jose’s Soldiers,” as one teacher calls them, have raised over $80,000 for his family through various fundraisers, like one at the Hollywood Chick-fil-A. Student Mirna Cabrera says:

“Jose is a person who was perfect, who had his whole future ahead of him and it just happened. We’re all here for the cause. We love to support. We’re a very united school.”
