Sky View Cause Week helps local five-year old

Sky View High School is springing into action for the third year with “Sky View Cause Week” and this year’s effort is to help the family of Matt and Nancy Felt of Wellsville. Their five-year old son Spencer received a heart transplant just before Christmas (December 16) after living on an artificial heart for two and a half months at Primary Children’s Hospital. “We have a lot of people who come to Sky View and present their causes to us,” said Student body President Justin Kidman. “The idea came before the executive council and we believed it was a worthy cause.” Beginning Monday, March 5 there will be events at night designed to raise money for the Felts. “We’re just trying to get the community involved and get as many people out to our activities as possible,” said Kidman. Monday is “Family Game Night” at Sky View with several activities underway. The Smithfield McDonald’s will donate a percentage of their Wednesday evening sales plus a drive-in movie will be shown in the school’s south parking lot that night. “Logan Lanes is donating a portion of their Thursday afternoon proceeds and Friday night some of the income from our swim night at The Sports Academy will be donated, too. The ‘Logan Out Loud’ Saturday night comedy show will be staged Saturday night at nine o’clock at Sky View.” A feature event of the week is the “Spencer Sprint” at 9 a.m. Saturday morning with registration and check-in from 8-8:30. It is a 5K and 1-mile run. “It’s a good deal,” said Kidman, “because the cost to run is about half of what a 5K usually is. Also, we are in need of volunteers to help run check stations along the way and help in other ways.”To volunteer or for more information, call Kidman at 760-9419.
