7th grade Navigators help plan the Johnson County Cancer Foundation Walk

The Warrensburg Middle School 7th and 8th Grade Peer Helpers and the 7th Grade Navigators alongside Dr. Ashlee Holdren assisted in the planning and orchestrating the Johnson County Cancer Foundation annual Walk/Run on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the Warrensburg Middle School track.  Despite the rain, over 100 participants showed up to walk the track or run the 5K route around "the loop."  The walk raised $13,515 all of which will stay in Johnson County to provide financial support to those in need who are fighting cancer and reside in Johnson County.  The Checker Ladies won the traveling trophy for being the team who raised the most funds by bringing in over $4300.  The Ridgeview Family Fighters, Battle for Brynn, Hayes' Hitmen, Team Luci and Team Teichman also brought in several participants.  JCCF would like to thank WHS senior Gabi Shull, Pastor Jerry Basye, WMS 7th grader Ryleigh Seibel, Mike DeVries with Sodexo, the Warrensburg R-VI School District and the Missouri American Water Company for making this year's walk a success.  JCCF hosts two major fundraising events each year, the JCCF walk and the JCCF Golf Tournament which is held in June.  Anyone wanting to donate can visit jocomocancer.org.
