The Libertyville High School Boys Cross Country Team raised $1,600 for the Semper Fi Fund by selling cookie dough with the help of NFP Sports fundraising. Top fundraisers were Alex Zoellick and Tyler Chen.
Following a seven-year team tradition, the team members elected to give half their proceeds to charity, and this year they selected the Semper Fi Fund.
The Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund is a nonprofit set up to provide immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. armed forces and their families. The Semper Fi Fund provides support in a variety of ways, including: service member and family support, specialized and adaptive equipment, adaptive housing, adaptive transportation, education and career transition assistance and therapeutic arts.
The Libertyville Boys Cross Country team is coached by Mark Buesing, Matt Condron, and Caitlin Bye.
