Titled “Think Pink, Think Prayer,” the event will take place at 6:30 p.m. Monday, June 4, on the lawn of the Prescott Valley Civic Center.
Toni Monreal, a social worker with the Humboldt Unified School District, helped coordinate the event. She spoke with a number of community members who know Nathan and his family, and they all agreed that a community-wide prayer would be an appropriate way to show support for them in these tough times.
“They’re a spiritual family and are asking for prays, positivity and hope,” Monreal said.
Being Nathan’s favorite color, pink has become a means of showing support for him and his recovery.
Rendl’s school, Liberty Elementary, recently reflected this by gathering for a group photo where most were dressed in pink. Two adults in the middle of the photo held signs that say “Team Nathan #13” and “Tough Guys Wear Pink.” They then sent the photo to Nathan and his family.

A GoFundMe page was started on behalf of Nathan’s parents, Bob and Daphne, to assist with any financial burdens that may accrue as a result of his injuries.
