 Linn-Mar Volleyball presents Think Pink Night
 

The Linn-Mar Volleyball Team will be celebrating its 2nd Annual Think Pink Night on Tuesday, October 21st.

Come support two local teams raise awareness for breast cancer as Linn-Mar hosts Cedar Rapids Xavier. ALL gate proceeds will be donated to The Especially for You Fund. Game times are as follows: JV at 5:30pm; Sophomore at 5:30pm; Varsity at 7:00 pm.

Last year this event was a huge success. An anonymous donor donated $100 to provide raffle door prizes. (This year, that same donor has increased their contribution to $150!) Players were able to make honor posters for women they know affected by the disease. They wore pink jerseys and fan shirts were available to the public. Linn-Mar Volleyball is hoping for the event to be even more successful this year!

In fact, this year ALL profits from the sale of the fan t-shirts will be given to The Especially for You Fund. This fund provides free mammograms and other breast-care services to area individuals in need. The deadline for ordering your t-shirt is October 1st, and the following is a link to the t-shirt order form:

Think Pink 2014 T-shirt Order Form

We are proud of our Linn-Mar community and the support this provides to local women fighting breast cancer.

Go Lions!


 Linn Grove PTO's Red Black Track Attack is a Success!
 

Recently the Linn Grove PTO held their annual Red Black Track Attack (RBTA) event. The RBTA Family Fun Run/Walk event was new this year, and over 88 people came out to walk/run for the school.

The PTO awarded Dog Tag Medals for the top 5 adult runners and top 5 kid runners. And they were (in no particular order):

  • Kid Runners: Connor Deahl, Kade Jesse, Caleb Suiter, Sydney Kleist and Jackson Anderson
  • Adult Runners: Rachel Suiter, Aaron Schaldecker, Kari Stillman, Corey Cornwell and Miranda Cummings

The school as a group tried to walk as many miles they could the day of the event. RBTA participants walked a total of 858.4 miles as a school during the day along with 88 miles during the evening event. That’s the equivalent to walking to Breckenridge, Colorado. Wow!

The goal for the RBTA event was to raise money for Classroom Enhancement and Specials (PE, Music, Art & Counseling). The PTO set a goal to raise $2400. The organization has raised over $3500 for Linn Grove Elementary from this event.

Way to go Linn Grove!
