Benefits for cancer victim helps raise total of $4,500
To the Editor,
The Tecumseh High School cross country team would like to thank the Tecumseh community for their incredible support of our “Miles for Miles” fundraiser. One of the boys on the cross country team has a 9-year-old brother named Miles who has end-stage brain cancer and whose family was in need of assistance for his medical expenses. The THS boys’ and girls’ cross country teams ran 905 miles between September 29, and October 6, and would like to thank the sponsors who pledged a penny or more per mile. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of so many people as we have raised over $4,500 so far. We would like to thank the THS boys’ soccer team, THS girls’ swim and dive team, and Clinton High School cross country team who contributed also to this fundraiser.The students at Tecumseh High School supported our Lev’s donut sales for a week. We especially would like to recognize the Tecumseh Middle School cross country team who ran a total of 200 miles in one day and raised over $2,000 themselves. We truly live in a giving, supportive community who has shown such great generosity for this very special family. Thank you!
Eddy Foley, boys cross country team head coach, and Jill Stockford, girls cross country team head coach
