CheerDonation

The Bellefontaine High School and Indian Lake High School cheerleaders joined together for a fundraiser Friday evening at the Chieftain and Laker football game at AcuSport Stadium. 

During halftime, the cheerleaders presented the Logan County Cancer Society representatives Tammy Allison and Melody Couchman with a check for $5,013. 

To raise funds, the pupils sold more than 360 T-shirts, with sponsorship assistance from Quest Federal Credit Union. Participants also passed pink hard hats throughout the stands at the end of the first quarter to collect donations.

Other activities included temporary tattoos, face painting by the BHS DARE Club and a vintage gypsy photo booth. The names of loved ones also were featured on the score board. 

During pre-game festivities, both schools honored staff members who are fighting cancer, Wayne Fahnestock and Jean Newmeyer, and also recognized Nancy Harmon.
