Fundraiser Friday for Pulaski HS teacher battling cancer

Team Teddy of Wisconsin is hosting a “Box Out Breast Cancer” fundraiser during Friday’s Pulaski High School varsity girls basketball game against De Pere.

Proceeds from the event will go to Pulaski High School teacher Katie Titler, who is battling breast cancer.

“Students came forth wanting to support Mrs. Titler and needing a way to give back to someone who has given so much to them,” said Kelly Logue, middle school health and physical education teacher and Team Teddy of Wisconsin president.

The game is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday at the Pulaski High School Fieldhouse, 1040 S. St. Augustine St., Pulaski.

“Box Out Breast Cancer” T-shirts will be sold at the game. A root beer float sale will also be held. A “Miracle Minute” is planned at halftime, when Team Teddy members will scatter throughout the bleachers and collect donations.

“We are so appreciative of the outpouring of community support we have already received and encourage everyone to get involved in some way,” said Jack Walker, Team Teddy of Wisconsin student president. “We hope to see everyone on Friday wearing pink, coming together for this great cause.”

Team Teddy is a student-run, nonprofit organization that provides stuffed animals to hospitalized children.
