The community of Hackett once again stepped up in a big way to help out in their community.
This morning over $1,400 was raised to send Special Olympics athletes to camp. According to coach Linda Magness, the money raised will be used to send four athletes to camp in hopes of qualifying for the state and national games. With a gloomy forecast in store for the afternoon, the weather held off for volunteers to reach their goal in around three hours.
Joined by the Hackett Police department were volunteers Linda Magness, Darren Magness, along with Randy and Joyce Lovell. Best of luck to all the athletes attending camp!
