GREAT FALLS - Sunnyside Elementary School principal Mr. Boyd is now sporting an orange Mohawk hairdo. He's keeping his word to students after a packed eight days of fundraising for two Great Falls kids struggling with health problems. 

Sunnyside student Alysa Curry explained, “There was a big challenge that said if we raise $700, Mr. Boyd will get a Mohawk. If we raise $1,000, he'll get orange stuff in his hair.”

First-grade student Daisy Hader and Environmental Education teacher Mr. Diekhans's son Calvin have to travel to Seattle Children's Hospital for treatment. 

According to Sunnyside, Daisy, just seven years old, has had many health problems. She's spent a number of birthdays in the hospital. Within the last six months, Daisy has been in the hospital four times. Daisy will once again be traveling to Seattle Children's Hospital to try to find out answers for her condition. 

Daisy's older sister Rily Hader said, “I think it is very sweet of our school especially to help my family. Daisy Hader is my little sister, part of the fundraiser is for all of us.” 

Calvin Diekhans was recently diagnosed with A.L.L Type B leukemia. Calvin is the son of Environmental Education teacher Luke Diekhans. 

Calvin and his family also recently flew to Seattle Children's Hospital and will be there for at least six months and will have to undergo more than two years of maintenance care.  

Just in the past week, students could donate one dollar to participate in fun initiatives like "Caps for Cash," "Jammies in June," and "Wild Hair Beware."

“We will split the money between two kids and they're going to help the families with the medical expenses because they are through the roof,” said student Paige Maynard.

Fundraising sites have been created to help both families.
