Local business helps Rachel’s Challenge
The Pridemore brothers of Pride Auto Care donated $3 from every
oil change last October to Rachel’s Challenge, a nonprofit
organization dedicated to minimizing bullying and violence in our
nation’s schools. Al Pridemore delivered a check to the Rachel’s
Challenge staff for $1,530. This check will ensure that at least
500 more students will hear Rachel’s message. Rachel’s Challenge,
headquartered in Littleton, is based on the true story of Rachel
Joy Scott, the first student killed at Columbine High School on
April 20, 1999. Rachel’s Challenge is a nonprofit, non-political,
non-religious organization dedicated to replacing bullying and
violence in schools with positive words and actions by teaching
basic life principles as demonstrated by Rachel’s life of kindness
and compassion. Pride Auto Care is a full service tire and auto
shop in Centennial, Littleton and Parker.
