A Corinth High School kicker is dedicating the 2017 football season to help children with cancer.
CHS kicker Michael Baugus will accept pledges and donations for each kick and punt he makes during the season to benefit childhood cancer research.
He hopes to raise $1,000 to fund over two days of research. For more information, to pledge or to donate, visit Michael’s Kick-It Champions page.
Corinth High School’s first game is Aug. 18.
All donations received will benefit childhood cancer research through Kick-It Champions, powered by Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
The Kick-It Champions program was started by All-State Ohio football player Matt Colella who battled cancer as a middle school student.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is a nonprofit that has raised more than $140 million toward finding a cure, funding over 690 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.
