CEDAR HILLS – As part of the Cedar Hills Champions program, the City Council recognized Kylee Wunder for her efforts in creating and implementing the Moving Mountains Soccer camp for autistic children. 

Kylee, a 13-year-old resident of Cedar Hills, has been a lifelong fan of soccer and has spent many years playing the sport. Her younger twin brothers, both of whom are autistic, attended a soccer camp in Salt Lake that catered to autistic children. Due to the time commitment involved with traveling to and from Salt Lake each day, Kylee approached her parents with the idea to start a soccer camp in Utah County. 

She reached out to Utah Valley University and with their support, as well as the support of several businesses and approximately 100 volunteers, has been able to host a two-day soccer camp for autistic children for the past two years. This year the camp was able to serve 80 children. 
“Kylee is an impressive young lady,” stated Mayor Gary Gygi. “It is inspiring to see the impact her efforts have had on the children who participate as well as the volunteers who serve.” 

The recognition ceremony took place during the August 1, 2017, City Council meeting. At that meeting the Council declared August 2, 2017, as Kylee Wunder Day in Cedar Hills.
