Friends, classmates walk to raise funds for Wyatt

Wednesday, February 14, 2018 by LINDA DEIBERT Special to The Press in Local News

Northwestern Middle School student Wyatt Newhard, who has been battling neuroblastoma since age 3, was the grand marshal of “Walk For Wyatt” during the Nov. 17, 2017, fundraiser.

Students in the middle school helped raise funds for Wyatt’s favorite charity, Star Treatments, which provides VIP rides to medical facilities for children battling cancer.

Family, friends, classmates and staff members, both current and from his years attending Weisenberg Elementary School, joined him for one hour on the track.

Students were given sponsor sheets to raise money and also could purchase gold bracelets with the wording “We Walk With Wyatt.”
