Participants in the annual Deer Creek Community Festival and Pre-Season Track Festival Saturday can designate their entry fees to be forwarded to students and parents involved in the recent tragedy affecting runners at Moore High School.
“In light of the recent tragedy impacting the track and field and cross country athletes at Moore High School, when you register you can select “Moore Students/families” to have the proceeds/profits from your entry fee be used as a donation to aid the Moore victims and families in their time of need,” said DC track coach David Riden.
All event profits/proceeds will be managed and disbursed by the Deer Creek track and field and cross country program, he said.
