Sidney students line up for ice cream cake provided by Dairy Queen during "Challenge Day" at Sidney High School on Thursday.

Sidney High School hosted its second annual "Challenge Day" on Thursday morning, sponsored by the Unified Raiders program. The Unified Raiders program brings students together and lets them know they're not alone when experiencing traumatic or emotional events effecting themselves or family members. The program sponsors events that address bullying, suicide prevention, and that encourage members to reach out to other students in times of need.

"Challenge Day" rolls out the Be The Change movement, a project dedicated to service and giving back to the community. The project focuses on be aware of of what's happening in the world around you as an individual, and acting in ways to bring about positive change focused on kindness and compassion. The program at Sidney High School focused on a video illustrating the principles of the Be The Change movement, and exercises to promote community, compassion, and kindness.

United Raiders organizer Shelby Price thanked Eric and Molly Price for donating Ice Cream Cake from the Sidney Dairy Queen for 200 people at the event, as well as all of the volunteers and participants that made the event a success.
