Organizers expect about 175 Cascade Middle School kids to brave some icy waters today; all out of love for a fellow student. Kaheawai Kaonoki  - or "KK" - is a Sparrow at Cascade Middle School and kids have been raising donations to get the chance to “Shiver and Shake” and help KK pay some medical expenses.

 

Organizer Karen Hobbs says a Sparrow is a sick child who is supported financially by their peers. 

 

She says some of the jumpers came from unlikely sources: "Very often you get the girls that want to be popular, and don't want to spoil their hair or their make up spoiling. And I’d say 'do you know KK?' 'Oh yeah, we love KK'  'Then why aren't you jumping? Come on, this is all about KK.' There was a table of 14 girls. One girl said 'Oh, well, give me a form.'  Seven others said, 'I’ll have a form.' So you know what? This is bigger than them. It’s just a wonderful thing to do." 

 

The Shiver and Shake begins at 12:30 p.m. at the Athletic Club of Bend and it is open to the public, if you want to go and watch and donate to a very worthy cause.
