Trotten for Otten on Saturday, October 1, 2016

Former athletes, coached by Dan Otten (track, cross country and soccer) have organized a run/walk event called "Trotten for Otten" which will take place on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at the Mercer County Fairgrounds.

Chicken and pork chop dinners will be on sale starting at 5 p.m..
The walk/run begins at 7:30 p.m., and a social time to talk with Dan has been set for after the run.

Cost to run is $25 per person, which includes a shirt, glow necklace and running bib, or $100 for five or more immediate family members. To get the shirt, entrants must register by Sept. 14. Signing up on the day of the race is $25 per person and $100 per family without a shirt. Shirts are also available for $12.

All proceeds will go towards Otten's medical expenses following a June 2016 surgery for chondrosarcoma ~ a cancerous tumor in his right pelvis. The team of surgeons at Ohio State University successfully removed the cancer but the surgery also shortened his leg. He is currently in recovery waiting for the “flail hip” to scar-in and allow him to put weight on his leg. He has been in rehab and continues to coach cross country from the sidelines.

Save Your Pop Tabs, and Help Us Give Hope to Families

It’s not just an urban myth. The Ronald McDonald House really does collect the aluminum pop tabs from cans.  The Ronald McDonald House is able to generate thousands of dollars from their pop tab collection program every year. That would be impossible without the amazing support of children and adults who faithfully collect the tabs. It’s an easy way to do something good and make a difference in the life of a seriously ill child. 

This year The Celina High School Spirit Squad and Student Council would like to have a competition between the different buildings in Celina to see which school can collect the most pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House.  We will be holding the competition from October 7th through the 13th.  The winning building will be announced at the football game on October 14th.  Good luck and start collecting!
