Support the expansion of My Choice – A school-based program that supports and empowers local youth by childhood trauma to believe: "I am strong! I have a choice! My life is what I make it!" Goal setting, positive decision making, positive adult relationships, communication skills, and breaking the cycle of addiction/abuse are the focus for "My Choice." This group works directly with the community to provide a variety of life learning opportunities for students. RaRaa has supported students participating in the My Choices within the Wausau School District. The students in the 2018 group made sun catchers for the 2018 RaRaa Run as part of a community outing.
