The Marengo Tackles Cancer for a Cure is sponsored by the Marengo Community High School Football Program and the Marengo Community High School National Honor Society chapter. Throughout the 2016 football season, we will be raising money to help benefit the Caskey family and the American Cancer Society.

How can you help? You may purchase a luminaire in “Memory of” or “Honor of” a loved one who has battled cancer. You may purchase a football sign to be displayed during home football games. Help us create a paper chain from field goal to field goal to represent how ‘together we stand’ by our loved ones and families that has been affected by cancer. We will collect dimes to “Destroy Cancer” on senior night October 14th. Or, you may purchase a Marengo Tackles Cancer for a cure t-shirt (click here for order form).

Your support can make a world of difference. Please join us to help show that we are united in the support of our friends and families who have been diagnosed with cancer. Together we can strengthen our community by helping those in need. Terri Clark once said, “when someone has cancer, the whole family and everyone who loves that family has cancer too.”

Cancer has impacted the lives of many members of our school, community and many families across the United States. Recently, Derek Caskey, a 2015 Marengo Community High School graduate and a former member of the Marengo Community High School football program was diagnosed with cancer.

Cancer in adolescents is the focus of the Marengo Tackles Cancer for a Cure Campaign. In 2014, there were over 5,000 new cases of cancer in teenagers across the country. The most common cancers include: Hodgkins lymphoma, thyroid carcinoma, and brain cancer. 610 adolescents died due to their cancer diagnoses. This number is equal to 83% of the Marengo Community High School’s current student population. »
