On February 11, the Mayer Lutheran girls basketball team hosted their seventh annual Crusaders for a Cure event. The Crusaders hosted the Stars from Southwest Christian that day.
The event consisted of many exciting activities, including a bake sale, a “sponsor the free throw shooter” event and a shooting contest. New this year was the rent-a-player event, which allowed adults who did not want to participate in the shooting contest to have our players shoot for them in an effort to win a television. Of course, we also played basketball. Our Mayer Lutheran boys and girls teams won four of the five games against Southwest Christian.
The support from Mayer Lutheran students and the community at large was outstanding! This year we raised $6,434. Our seven year total is over $32,000.
Many thank-you’s are in order for this event. Thanks to all of the sponsors who donated items and/or cash to the event. Thanks to those who were in attendance that evening and participated by making a donation or by taking part in the night’s events. Thank you to Ridgeview Medical Center for allowing us to partner with them in their Pay It Forward program. Finally, and most importantly, thank you to our Lord and Savior, who clearly blessed this event. The success of Crusaders for a Cure and the generosity of our community is truly a testament to the work of the Holy Spirit. To God all praise and glory!
