Placeholder Image
Warren County Middle School is reaching for the gold in an effort to raise awareness about childhood cancer and generate money for Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.From now until the school’s next home football game Sept. 15, students will be raising money by purchasing gold and purple paper chain links for 25 cents or T-shirts for $10 with the logo “Be Bold Wear Gold.” At 6 p.m. on game day, the school will offer a ceremony and honor those affected by childhood cancer with a moment of silence and a release of balloons donated by All-O-K’sions.During the 6:30 p.m. game, wristbands for $2 and ribbons for $1 will be sold and cheerleaders will take helmets around the stadium for donations. If the helmet effort raises $400, administrators and coaches will take the Ice Bucket Challenge on the field at halftime.This is the school’s second year to increase awareness about childhood cancer.
