FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Students at Towels New Tech Middle School on East Paulding Road held a fundraiser for the Parkview Cancer Institute.
A recent class project taught students about a cancer and also how to be involved with cancer patients.
Saturday morning, several dozen people released balloons – some with messages, in support of cancer patients.
Then, participants could walk or run for one mile and kids could do a fun run.
“At the very beginning of the project, the teachers went out and bought a bunch of stuff to make chemotherapy comfort kits,” said Carson Dantzer, a student at the school. ”
The fundraiser was organized as a class project.
