Northern Lights Foundation Helps Teen in Moose Lake
A Moose Lake Elementary student, Megan Wegge was diagnosed with a form of liver cancer and is currently receiving chemotherapy that will continue through the summer. A fundraiser was held over the week-end in Sturgeon Lake and the Northern Lights Foundation presented the family with a $2000 check. The Northern Lights Foundation is an organization that was a dream of Dr. Ken Larson, a local dentist. He wanted to provide financial assistance for families that have a child or children that have a catastrophic disease or illness.
NLF hold several fundraisers throughout the year to fund their grant program. You're invited to the next one:
The 4th Annual Softball Challenge, Guns N’ Hoses. It pits the Duluth Police Force against the Duluth Firefighters. The event is FREE and open to the public on Tuesday, June 28 at Wade Stadium. Doors open at 5:30p and free food will be provided by Texas Roadhouse. There is a silent auction and raffle with all donations/proceeds benefiting the www.northernlightsfoundation.org.
If you would like to make a donation to the Wegge family to help with Megan's treatment, please call Dennis at 218.485.1223.
