Parker McMahan

Hogan Cedars Elementary School 

This month’s KGW Rachel’s Challenge Hero of the Month is Parker McMahan, a 3rd grader at Hogan Cedars. In October, Parker organized the first annual Parker's October Walk (POW), a fundraiser for American Cancer Society.

Using word of mouth advertising and flyers she made herself, Parker brought together walkers who each paid a $5 entry fee to join the 2-mile walk. Parker successfully raised over $600 for the cause.

This is not the first fundraiser for Parker. Her first experience was raising $14 for her Uncle after his motorcycle injury in April.

Parker is already planning the 2nd Annual Parker's October Walk aka “2nd POW”!

Congratulations Parker!
