After an impressionable 15-year-old paegant winner from Louisiana visited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, she decided it wasn’t fair that children had cancer. During her trip, she shared a bowl of gumbo with Dalton, a boy undergoing chemotherapy treatments who hadn’t eaten in days. She didn’t know it then, but that visit would change her life forever.
Eight years later, Brittany Hebert founded Sky High after being challenged to raise $10,000 for the very hospital that made such an impact on her. She and a handful of girlfriends, hosted Sky High’s first event: a sporting clay tournament. These women went on to raise $50,000 and the rest, as they say, is history.
