A special group of middle school students team up to raise awareness for childhood cancer when their own classmates are affected.
The Junior Beta Club at Worth County Middle School asked their students to bring in any spare change to donate to CURE Childhood Cancer. The fundraising was in memory of Adam Giddens, who lost his battle to cancer. Adam was the son of Terry Giddens, a teacher at the Middle School. The students were also donating in honor of Christopher Oates, (who is) a student currently battling Ewing Sarcoma, a form of childhood cancer. All-in-all the students collected a total of $450.00, which they donated to CURE.
We greatly appreciate everyone at Worth County Middle School who donated, as well as the Beta Club Officers, who decided to help raise awareness of childhood cancer at their school and honor both Adam and Christopher.
