2015 Rare Childhood Disease Assembly

“LET THE PENNY WAR BEGIN! This is a hard assembly to do, as emotions are thick and strong. I LOVE how we spotlight children within our district and their medical needs as they battle Rare Childhood Diseases. What a gift to also meet some amazing doctors and researchers devoted to finding answers. BR Families–show your support and send in those pennies to build your class points & lots of silver coins and dollars to sabatoge.  Proceeds go to The Belnap Foundation — a local foundation dedicated to assisting local children and their families with Rare Childhood Diseases.”  

–Rebecca J. Montoya, BRSD Counselor, LAC, NCC, MEd,


Charlotte, Tenille, and Chase were 3 students who were highlighted at the Rare Childhood Disease kick off assembly.  You can watch their amazing stories below.  Chase was unable to attend and his friend Grace read a letter written by Chase.
