Team Colin Fundraiser is big success

It's tough to throw a football with whipped cream on your hands. This was one of the obstacles for children participating in the Team Colin obstacle course last Saturday.“Team Colin” is an ongoing success story.
A community event last Saturday, along with an associated fundraising campaign over the past several weeks, raised about $30,000 to help defray medical and travel expenses for the family of 16-month-old Colin Petersen of Albion.
Colin, son of Jon and Stacy Petersen, underwent heart transplant surgery on Oct. 7 and had a second open heart surgery last week. He is now in recovery from the second surgery.
“We had a lot of volunteers, both youth and adults, and a lot of area businesses stepped in to help out,” said Erica Young, chair of the fundraiser organizing committee.
