Peck Community Schools Athletes Donate to United Hospice Service
This past fall the varsity football and volleyball teams of Peck Community Schools hosted Pink Out benefit games to support the local hospice program, United Hospice Service of Marlette Regional Hospital.
Their Pink Out games were held to raise awareness about cancer in general and all athletes played in honor of someone special. As a result of admission sales, apparel and luminary bag sales, students recently presented hospice with a donation of $1,183.50. Athletic Director Paula Davidson shared that her mother was a hospice nurse for the program when it originally started back in the 1980s and wanted to support the local program that continues to support terminally-ill patients and their families today.
United Hospice Service extends their thanks and appreciation to Peck Community Schools, their athletes, and patrons that supported the hospice program through these games.
