SUFK Sponsors Valleyfair Field Trip

The Stand Up For Kids Foundation was the proud sponsor for this year's Park Center Senior High Valleyfair Field Trip. 100 students were rewarded for their efforts in school with a trip to Valley Fair. The students, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders, were taken to Valleyfair where they enjoyed a full day of rides, games, a grill out lunch, and of course FUN!

For most students this was their first time to experience Valleyfair; while also giving students the opportunity to be kids and enjoy the outdoors. Some of the kids that attended were also affected by the tornadoes in North Minneapolis, giving them a few hours of peace where they didn't have to worry about some of their problems at home.

The Stand Up For Kids Foundation would like to thank Park Center Senior High for allowing us to be a part of this year's Valleyfair field trip. We are grateful for the school's and student's support and gratitude. We look forward to working with Park Center again in the future.


"We want to sincerely thank Cedric Griffin and the Stand Up For Kids Foundation for sponsoring this year's Valleyfair Field Trip. Without their support the event would not have taken place. You have made a huge impact in our student's lives and we greatly appreciate your involvement with the school." -Rosalind Bakion, Park Center High School
