New Miami’s Candlelight Vigil: Doing Something Worth Remembering

On October 27th, New Miami High School dedicated their #AMFChallenge to Christian Benge and her family by hosting a Candlelight Vigil. Christian Benge, who was a student at New Miami High School, passed away on Friday, October 17th from an underlying heart condition. The high school created a truly amazing event to remember her and support the family. It is great to see that New Miami can create light during such a dark time.

New Miami high school did a number of fundraisers within the school in order to raise enough money to help the family with expenses for a headstone and a tree they planted outside their school. It is through the generous acts that this school has done, that highlight the importance of coming together to get through a loss and bringing together a community.

The point of the AMF Challenge is not who can raise the most money but who can make an impact on the community around them. That is just what New Miami is doing and it is wonderful to see a community come together during such a hard time.
