Students and faculty competed in volleyball and badminton tournaments at Naugatuck High School as part of the 'Wish Upon a Net' fundraiser Nov. 17. Money collected at the event went to the Kids Wish Network, a nonprofit that grants wishes to children with life-threatening conditions.

Wishing upon a net

NAUGATUCK — Naugatuck High School faculty might have slammed students in a faculty versus student volleyball and badminton tournament last Thursday, but the real winners were two children with life-threatening diseases.

As part of her capstone project, NHS senior Andrea Neagu organized the “Wish Upon a Net” tournament to raise money for the Kids Wish Network.

The funds she raises will help send five-year-old McKenna, who suffers from mitochondrial DNA deletion syndrome, and three-year-old Aiden, who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, to Disneyland and Disney World, respectively.
