Community support is a cornerstone of a thriving society, and organizations that actively engage in charitable initiatives can play a vital role in uplifting their local communities. At Northwest Specialty Hospital (NWSH) here in northern Idaho, we strive to stand out as an exemplary institution that not only delivers exceptional healthcare but also extends its philanthropic efforts to various community projects. We strongly believe that no one can thrive, either personally or professionally, unless we support one another to achieve that end. One organization that NWSH has supported is the Coeur d’Alene High School Viking Booster Club and Education Foundation.
The CDA High School Viking Booster Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting both athletic and academic programs that are not fully funded by the Idaho public school system at the state or district levels. The Booster Club enables the school to raise the caliber of its programs to provide the CDA High School Vikings with top-notch programs for its students.
The booster club serves as a catalyst for supporting and enhancing both athletic and academic programs at Coeur d’Alene High School. The organization recognizes that, for high school students, the pursuit of excellence extends beyond the classroom, encompassing sports, arts, and extracurricular activities. These activities are valuable in cultivating values such as teamwork, discipline, and perseverance – traits that will empower young people to succeed.
Extracurricular programs often face funding shortfalls, making it challenging to provide students with the resources needed to excel. In addition to supporting the Vikings boys and girls sports programs for baseball, softball, football, basketball, volleyball, soccer, swim, cross country, tennis, track, wrestling, and golf, the CdAHS booster club further supports student programs for photography, art, skeet and trap, cheer, debate, band, dance, pottery, drama, choir, DECA, Key Club, and Student Council.
The booster club aims to bridge the financial gaps in running these programs by raising funds through various sponsorships and community partnerships with organizations like NWSH. Over the year, the CDA High School Viking Booster Club will hold an auction, concession stand sales, an annual golf tournament, and other events at venues throughout Coeur d’Alene. Along with these events, the Viking booster club relies on generous donations from individuals, local businesses, and foundations. These donations cover the shortfall from state or school district financial sources needed to keep these activities funded. These efforts ensure that every student has equal opportunities to explore their passions, develop skills, and foster personal growth outside the traditional academic setting, unhampered by personal financial handicaps.
