Kids helping kids. You hear that phrase a lot. We at the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer, Inc.) often see this in action as kids reach out to help a child with cancer or a blood disorder. Here are just a few wonderful examples:
- Shorewood High School’s “Shorewood Games,” held nearly every four years since 1988 when they were inspired to help a student with cancer named Gus. Special events galore, “Buzz Cuts” for boys and girls and fun between students and faculty helped raise more than $30,000 for the MACC Fund’s fight against childhood cancer and blood disorders.

- The Lake Country Charity Invitational golf event sponsored by Hartland Arrowhead High School includes many of Wisconsin’s finest high school golfers. Brandon, who graduated from high school in 2008 after battling cancer for six years, inspired the team before they teed off through a very emotional letter. He encouraged them to never take anything for granted and to be grateful for their health and for the chance to compete.
