Sale T-shirts benefit young cancer patients
The Glacier Ice Arena is selling T-shirts created to support nonprofit organization Delaney Donates for a discounted price of $10 this week in hopes of raising $500 for the organization.
The discount comes the same week the organization’s namesake and neuroblastoma patient, Delaney Clements, made international news when her friend, Caprock Academy third-grader Kamryn Renfro, was temporarily barred from school for shaving her head in solidarity with Clements, who lost her hair to chemotherapy.
Shaved heads are banned by Caprock’s dress code. Renfro was able to return to school Tuesday pending a 3-1 decision Tuesday night by the school’s board of directors to allow her to attend school under a waiver from the dress code for “extraordinary circumstances.”
Like Renfro, the ice arena wants to raise awareness about childhood cancer, which was the reason for the sale. The ice arena has the T-shirts because Glacier hosted a fundraising event for Delaney Donates in February.
The shirts come in three different styles. The shirts can be purchased at the arena at 2515 Riverside Parkway.
All proceeds from T-shirt sales will be given to Delaney Donates. The organization donates funds to people who need financial support while going through cancer treatment.
