Girl’s High School Project Raises Money for Cure Kids Cancer
Rachelle Moore is a typical high school girl at Sanborn Central. She’s an athlete who plays basketball and runs track. She also, with the help of her community, raised well over $3,000.
Her story begins after a bad track practice in the spring of 2012. Moore was driving home feeling bad about the workout. As she drove, she heard the story of Wesson Littau during the Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon.
“I pulled over to the side of the road, sobbing and crying,” Moore said. “I was not having a bad day, those kids were. They were fighting cancer and I couldn’t believe I felt bad about a bad track practice.”
That was the inspiration for Moore to organize a basketball tournament for 7th and 8th graders to raise money for the Cure Kids Cancer cause. There was a bake sale, auction, concessions, and free will donations to raise money.
She raised $3,330 with the event. That money was given during a triple match hour during the 2013 radiothon and was turned into $9,990.
