Sterling High School Student Council members and their advisors were all smiles recently as they donated the $4,500 Crazy for a Cure event proceeds to the CGH Health Foundation.

The annual benefit for area cancer patients was held Feb. 3-4 during the boys and girls basketball games. Student Council members sold t-shirts, had raffle baskets, a dessert raffle and also sold Valentines. The Sterling elementary schools hosted a pajama and hat day and students made a donation of their choosing.

The donation impacts people you know and love, providing mammograms, breast biopsies, ultrasounds, MRIs, meals for chemotherapy patients, cancer comfort bags, wigs, scarves, turbans, surgical camisoles and gas cards.

Make sure to like and share the new CGH Health Foundation Facebook page - - that features loads of health information and updates on nearly 20 programs, all made possible by our many area donors.
