BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A fundraiser for a local teen who died in a car accident on Sunday has quickly surpassed its goal.

Friends of Squalicum High School student Hannah Dashiell started a donation page at www.gofundme.com to pay for a memorial bench at the Barkley Village Haggen store location where Hannah worked.

The page raised more than $20,000 in ten hours Wednesday.

The extra money raised will go to a scholarship fund in Hannah’s name that will help girls pursuing medical careers.
