OMMS SPORTS UPDATES
Boys Basketball teams: are hosting a fundraiser to raise awareness for childhood cancer today during our home games against Clay. All proceeds from ticket and concession sales will be donated to a charity organization called Kids Join the Fight. Walker Beery, who was diagnosed with Pediatric Brain Cancer in 2019, started this organization. Walker sadly passed away earlier this year, but his vision of fighting childhood cancer lives on through this organization. Students are encouraged to wear yellow to the game in support of the cause. Additional donations will be accepted at a booth located at the entrance. Thank you in advance for your support. More information about this charity can be found at Kidsjointhefight.org.
