March Madness for Hannah
Tonight the Glenwood High School is putting on their annual March Madness Basketball Game. The Glenwood Community High School Senior Class will be competing against the High School Coaches and Staff. Tonight’s game will start at 7:00 PM at the Glenwood High School.
This year is special because many of the students will be wearing pink in support of Glenwood Senior Hannah DeLashmutt. Hannah was born in 1998 and is the daughter of Destiny and Kenneth DeLashmutt. At the age of nine Hannah DeLashmutt was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease that causes lung infections and limits the ability to breath over time. Hannah currently needs a life saving double lung transplant that usually costs over $500,000 dollars. Hannah and her family are currently working with COTA which stands for Children’s Organ Transplant Association Facts. COTA is a national charity that is dedicated to organizing and guiding communities to help raise funds for transplant-related expenses. The charity is based out of Bloomington, Indiana. The town of Glenwood is currently trying to raise $60,000 dollars to help out Hannah.
This Sunday, March 26th the Glenwood High School is having a brunch for Hannah. The brunch will be at Kaufman Hall (Holy Rosary Catholic Church) from 9 AM to 12 AM.
On April 8th at the American Legion in Glenwood, Iowa there will be a benefit dinner and silent auction for Hannah. The prices for tickets are $10 dollars online http://bit.ly/HannahDEvent or $12 dollars at the door. (Children the ages of 6 and under are $5 dollars online or $6 dollars at the door)
