High school students join club to support families affected by cancer


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — High school students have plenty of activities to choose from, but this year a Junior at O’Gorman decided to create a new club focused on others.

“I’ve seen a lot of my own family friends and family be really impacted by cancer,” said Kaia Folsom, student.

She proposed creating the Knights for a Cure, a student organization designed to help support families going through cancer care at hospitals in Sioux Falls. An idea that has sparked a huge reaction from students at O’Gorman.

“The response was unbelievable, by far the most support we’ve had for any club we’ve started,” O’Gorman Assistant Principal, Alex Anderson said.

Find out why this new club has so many students fired up at O’Gorman coming up in Thursday night’s Eye on KELOLAND at 10 p.m.
