Mullen High School Valentines' Day Sale
February 13th and 14th
The Boys Lacrosse Team of Mullen High School of Denver Colorado celebrated Valentine's Day this February 13th and 14th to support the Children’s Hospital Colorado Oncology Unit with a teddy bear sale. This is the third year that that team has helped the Bears and Blankets Fund earn money to buy fuzzy teddy bears and warm security blankets to be distributed to each child that checks into Oncology. The team members have a soft spot in their hearts for the Oncology Unit where one of their teammates fought his battle with cancer, is now healthy and has moved on to college. This year the team sold Valentine red bears and Mullen blue bears embroidered with a tender heart. The bears sold during the lunch hours for $10 each. All proceeds went to the Bears and Blankets Fund. Thanks again, Mullen High!
