Peshtigo community comes together for 'Orange Out' fundraiser

PESHTIGO (WLUK) -- The Peshtigo community came together to make a difference.

An "Orange Out" Fundraiser was held for Meghan Harper at Peshtigo High School Tuesday night.

The fundraiser took place at the girls JV and Varsity basketball games.

People wore orange in support of Harper, who is battling leukemia.

There was a "Dash for Cash" collection at halftime during the varsity game.

Students ran around to get as many donations as they could in 60 seconds.

Peshtigo's principal also read a letter to Harper, dedicating the school's basketball season to her.

"It makes me feel supported to know that everyone is keeping me in their prayers," Harper said.

Harper is preparing for her last round of chemotherapy. She will also undergo a bone marrow transplant.
