Local Heroes: Meet Riley and Alleigh

Hazen Union seventh graders Riley and Alleigh used their love of basketball as inspiration to create, plan, and host a charity game between the school's varsity boys team and alumni athletes.

With help from the community, the girls raised $1,000 for Make-A-Wish Vermont. 

"It's really satisfying. When we do projects in school we always try to help, but sometimes it doesn't end up going the way we want. But one thousand dollars makes you feel like you did a good job," stated Riley.
