Fundraiser is Friday for PHS teacher battling cancer

Team Teddy of Wisconsin is hosting a “Box Out Breast Cancer” fundraiser during Friday’s Pulaski High School varsity girls basketball game vs. De Pere at PHS.

 

Proceeds from the event will go to a Pulaski High School teacher who is battling breast cancer.

 

“The PHS Team Teddy students came forth wanting to support Mrs. (Katie) Titler and needing a way to give back to someone who has given so much to them and who has a positive influence on our community,” said  Kelly Logue, PCMS health/physical education teacher and Team Teddy of Wisconsin president. “Team Teddy has played such a strong role in the community and in my life since starting the organization three years ago that I found it only fitting to pay it forward to someone so special.  I am blessed to have each student (PCMS/PHS) and staff member that has helped along the way.  They are the heart and soul of Team Teddy and continue to amaze me daily,” she added.

 

 “Box Out Breast Cancer” T-shirts are available for sale at the game. A root beer float sale will be held to also raise money.

 

Another activity planned is a “Miracle Minute”. During halftime of the basketball game, Team Teddy of Wisconsin members will scatter throughout the bleachers holding cans. People then can give donations that will be given to the teacher.

 

Also, when people enter the gym, they will receive a pink glow stick, which will be held up in the air during the starting lineups when the lights are off.

 

“We are so appreciative of the outpouring of community support we have already received, and encourage everyone to get involved in some way.  We hope to see everyone on Friday wearing pink, coming together for this great cause,” said Jack Walker, Team Teddy of Wisconsin student president.

 

Team Teddy is a student-run non-profit organization of more than 150-plus middle and high school students. The mission of Team Teddy of Wisconsin is to provide plush animal building experiences to children suffering from a variety of serious ailments throughout the Wisconsin hospital system and beyond.
