Opposing Schools Come Together For Ailing Walnut Teen

Posted by wlpo on September 9, 2013

Even though St. Bede and Bureau Valley football players battled it out on the field Friday night, the players and fans in the stands were united for a cause off the field.

Around seven thousand dollars was raised between the schools and their fan bases for Bureau Valley student Cora Peters.  Peters is battling a rare form of cancer called Synovial Sarcoma which attacks the joints.  The teen was first diagnosed in 2009.

The money raised at the St. Bede and Bureau Valley football game will help send Peters on a vacation to Hawaii before her next set of scans.
