2018-07-07

COLON – There's going to be a lot of activity going on at Colon High School Saturday, and all for a good cause.

The “Love For Landon Benefit” will be happening from 8 AM until 12 PM to raise money to help 2 year old Landon, who was recently diagnosed with leukemia, and is at Mott Children's Hospital where he is receiving treatment.

Colon attorney Debbie Davis says she heard about Landon and his family from her friend Kim Wirgau, who works with Landon's mother. Davis says she immediately contacted the United Way to see if they would help out.

United Way Executive Director Kelly Hostetler says all of the money raised on Saturday for Landon will go through the Family Catastrophic Fund, and then placed in a bank account for the family to use.

Wirgau says the support from not only Colon, but all around the area for the event has been overwhelming.

Some of the events set for Saturday include a bouncy house; a walk-a-thon; a bake sale; face painting, kids races and a silent auction.

You can also make a donation directly to help Landon at Colon High School, or by going to the United Way web site at sjcuf dot com.
