On the roster was Mikayla Sky Prescot of Ft.Peck, who followed in her sister's footsteps from last year. She was joined by Kale Fasting of Bozeman, andLaiken Oellerman of Glendive, as well as Gloria Hungate of Stanford. Gloria and a few friends have been faithfully manning a lemonade stand at the local farmers markets throughout the year to raise money for donations. Many other supporters led fundraising efforts prior to the derby including Team Tate of Glendive, who held a bake sale in honor of their friend and classmate Tate Beggar who lost his life to childhood cancer. Several others held garage sales, set up lemonade stands and two little boys even had their birthday guests bring dona- tions for FFTC instead of presents. The total fundraising efforts of this year's derby yielded over $29.000. With the incredible support, Fishin for the Cure is able to help fund the most prom- ising research grants to help find new treatments, and hopefully a cure, for a disease which claims seven children every day. Lynnette Siegle, mother of Matt Siegle and Secretary of FFTC says "Our goal is to cure childhood cancer one lake at a time. We have expanded our dream to in- clude tournaments in North Dakota and Arizona." If you or your company would like to become involved in this wonderful cause, con- tact Lynnette.
