It was a sea of orange all over Georgetown on Friday. In honor of Spencer, we sported Team Spencer shirts, shaved heads and walked. Many of our staff and students raised money for the Georgetown FUN RUN.
Five staff members (Mr. Rob, Mr. Gort, Mr. Bowen, Mr. Bialochowski and Mr. Kooiker) promised to have their heads shaved if 100 students participated in the run. We reached that goal and the school itself raised over $5,000 to help the Meyer family cover medical expenses. In addition, several of our students shaved their heads to support Spencer in his fight against cancer.
Many of you are aware that our special kindergartener, Spencer Meyer is fighting leukemia. Spencer is receiving treatment at DeVos Children’s Hospital through the month of April.
To show support, many of students and families have registered to join “Team Spencer” and run either the Fifth Third River Bank Run (May 12), or the Fifth Third Feelin’ Good Fun Run (May 9).
Thank you to everyone who has joined to support this special little boy and his family! “Team Spencer” is such a worthwhile cause, that WZZM 13 reporter Valerie Lego has contacted Michele Sytsma (organizer of Team Spencer) for an interview with all the Team Spencer runners and his kindergarten class on Monday, April 23.
We would like everyone in the school to wear orange on this Monday April 23 and again on Friday April 27 to show support for Spencer and everyone we know who has been impacted by cancer in some way. Monday and Friday are ORANGEdays!If you are interested in more information about “Team Spencer,” please feel free to contact Michele Sytsma by email: email@example.com All registrations will be accepted through Wednesday, April 25.
Thank you again for everyone’s care and support for our wonderful kindergartener, Spencer.
