Milk Box Derby to benefit cancer victim

December 12, 2012

The friends of Alexis Bivins, a 14-year-old student at the RJK Middle School who is being treated for a very rare form of cancer, are hosting a Milk Box Derby fundraiser at 10 a.m. on January 12 at Holiday Mountain. The snow date is January 26. The fundraiser will help Alexis’ family with expenses for her treatment. Alexis is being treated for Primitive Undifferentiated Pediatric Sarcoma; only 18 people in the U.S. have this type of cancer.

Students are encouraged to enter a personalized milk-box sled to race down Holiday Mountain. All entries must be a 1/2-gallon-size cardboard container with a full water bottle inside. The entry fee is $10 and sponsors are also needed. Visit www.Monticello for information on how to enter the derby or sponsor a sled.
