Each year, students at Lone Peak High School organize and participate in a school and community service effort called Gold Rush, which raises funds for charitable service projects. A non-profit organization is then selected to benefit from the money raised by the students and the community. Gold Rush is a time when the students at the school focus on service.
Lone Peak’s SkillsUSA Club recently announced this year’s humanitarian project: "Three Weeks, Two Schools, Become One." In the span of only three weeks enough funds were raised to help build two schools in Chiapas, Mexico. Through these efforts, Lone Peak students were able to help change the lives of the children in that area.
