Athletes Raise $25,000 to Help Young Adults with Cancer and Brain Tumors

big-check

Horace Greeley student athletes raised attention and funds to support two wonderful local charities, The Making Headway Foundation and The Gardner Marks Foundation. These two non-profit organizations provide assistance to families impacted by childhood/young adult cancer and brain tumors. Now, in its 3rd year, The Horace Greeley Athlete Walkathon turned 2016 into something special. A Student Athlete Committee lead this year’s effort, reaching out into the community and spreading an important message, “One Team – One Dream”.

The team included Carly Levitz, Katie Graham, Willa Kuhn, Aaron Wolk, Seth Goldstein, Tyler Hill, and Marc Stern. This grassroots effort attracted more donations than ever before, raising over $25,000. The power of young people to impact society has never been greater. This event is a wonderful example of students who found a cause they were passionate about, put in the work, and raised a tremendous amount of money. This holiday season, there is so much to be thankful for. The Horace Greeley Athletes Walkathon reminds us to be thankful for our health, our children, and the inspirational energy of youth.

A special thanks to the Greeley Sports Boosters, who were our sponsor, as well as donations from local merchants Villarina, Cathy Hair Studio, Old Stone Pizzeria, New Castle Mobil, Elders Car Detail, Langes Deli, Quaker Tavern, and Breathe Yoga.
