For the boys’ and girls’ wrestling match against Crestwood on January 12, managers Kortni O’Connell, Grace Stortz, and Maggie Lovstuen organized a Pink Out/Breast Cancer Awareness Night. T-shirts were available for a donation, and $209 was collected to donate to the Winneshiek County Celebration of Life (WCCOL). 

Representatives from the WCCOL were in attendance that evening to share their experiences and passion towards supporting breast cancer patients and families. They especially wanted to spread the news that the WCCOL board voted to commit funds and time to support children in active treatment of cancer by approving the inclusion of children to the Fuel/Food program.  Beginning January 1st, 2023, applications will be inclusive of all residents of Winneshiek County (or those persons whose primary care provider is located in Winneshiek County) and are in active treatment of cancer. The program has always been solely supported by caring individuals, organizations, and businesses. More information is on their website
