Summit Spikes for a Cure

Spike for a Cure was a big success and an event to remember! Summit parents, teachers, and students came together to play, cheer and support LCJSMS’s Sylvie, who is fighting Hodgkins Lymphoma… and winning! Over $3,500 was raised for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!

Brayton school PE teacher Mr. Paul Fessock kept the event hopping as dj –he also happens to be the owner of School of Rock. Summit Police and Fire Departments arrived with horns blowing and lights flashing and gave Sylvie and her family with a cruise in their new DARE hot rod; Senior Catherine Hassert sang the national anthem; and then teams played a Round Robin tournament competing for donated prizes.

A big thank you to the following businesses for their support in making this event such a huge success: The Orbach Group, The Kessel Family, Loya – Yoga Studio, The Hynes Family, Mondo, Ahhre’s Coffee, Thompson’s, Winberries, The Summit Diner, Roots Steakhouse, YMCA of Summit, Sweet Nothings, Committed Pig, Magic Fountain, Heather Duetsch – Handcrafted Jewelry, Starbucks, Paper Source, LaPastaria, Marigolds, Rekemeier’s Flowers.
