Pittsfield: Fundraiser organized for Taconic student
"Braves Unite — Her Fight is Our Fight," a school-wide fundraising event for Brielle Winters, a Taconic High School sophomore who was recently diagnosed with brain cancer, will take place at 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 11, on the Taconic track.
An estimated 200+ pre-registered participants will have one hour to complete as many laps around the track as possible. Upon event completion, participants will have one week to collect donations based on their performance.
Winters has multiple chemotherapy and radiation treatments scheduled in Boston.
Community members can support Winters through sponsorship of a Taconic student participant. Donations can also be made directly to Christine Hisert and dropped off or mailed to Taconic High School, 96 Valentine Road, Pittsfield, MA 01201.
