To show their support for Nathan Rendl, his school, Liberty Elementary, in Prescott Valley gathered for a group photo and sent it to him and his family. Most in the photo wore pink, Nathan’s favorite color.

The Prescott Valley community is invited to participate in an upcoming prayer session for Nathan Rendl, a 12-year-old boy who was seriously injured May 7 after being struck by a vehicle.

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.
