The club has collected $444.25 of the $400 they had hoped to raise.

 

Funds collected will support the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation (UMDF).

Donations will be collected through Monday.

“They (UMDF) are the organization that works to try and find the cure for the eyesight disease that one of our students, Josh Bangert, is suffering from,” Student Council adviser Candace Fikis said.
