Elementary students raise funds for classmate

Sopris Elementary School third-grade students are hosting a car wash and barbecue this weekend to help a hospitalized classmate.The fundraiser takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 29, at the Roaring Fork School District office parking lot (formerly the Glenwood Springs High School parking lot). The event will raise money for SES third-grader Will Osier, who has been hospitalized since April 8 at The Children’s Hospital in Denver with a rare and debilitating medical condition. Students will wash cars and serve hot dogs to help offset medical and related expenses for the Osier family.Will’s dad, Kenny Osier, said the family appreciates the community efforts – especially from Will’s classmates – to help in such a sensitive time.”The kids are the ones who have really stepped up on this one,” he said. “Will’s class and his friends have really stepped up to give him moral support.”In addition to Sunday’s car wash and barbecue, support for the Osier family can be made through donations to the William Osier Benefit Account established at Alpine Bank.
