OTSEGO, Mich. -- Students at Otsego Public Schools are working to help raise money to find better treatment options for people living with cancer and Parkinson's disease.
The school district has even created its own purple shirts to sell, with the money raised going towards cancer research, finding a cure for Parkinson's and for Alzheimer's.
During the week-long event, students will hear from cancer survivors and take part in a variety of different activities.
Over the last four events at Otsego, the community has raised almost $72,000. The goal this year is to reach $100,000.
