Rachel's Challenge is a program based on the writings of Rachel Scott, who was the first student killed in the school shootings at Columbine in 1999. Hope was a freshman at the school when she died in December after battling cancer for over two years.

York Dispatch photojournalist Dawn Sagert, who contributed to the video with a still photo, made this video from the event.
