EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- It was a special day on the football field at Carson Park as the Regis Ramblers took on Spencer-Columbus.
Fans coming in to see the game Saturday were asked to help buy a t-shirt for a "Tie it Teal" campaign, hoping to raise money in the fight against ovarian cancer.
This year's effort was organized by two members of the Regis football team, Jaret Kern and Jared Merkel.
This was the sixth year Regis has led this campaign and the show of support has hit more than just those who contract ovarian cancer.
"My wife passed away six years ago. She was a lot younger than I was. That fall, the football team took on the fact that they were going to change their colors for that game. They were going to make a huge effort to try and get the word out about ovarian cancer and try to raise funds for the research. That's been a tradition that's been continuing for six years, even after I retired," former educator Howard Ludwigson said.
All proceeds from Saturday's t-shirt sale will benefit the Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
