Pulaski students help teacher fighting cancer

PULASKI, Wis. (WBAY) - Pulaski students, staff and fans certainly made it known Friday night that a teacher battling breast cancer isn't fighting the disease alone.

It started with a pink glow during the Pulaski girls basketball game at home.

It continued with the selling of "Box Out Breast Cancer" T-shirts and root beer floats at the game.

All proceeds will go to help Spanish teacher Katie Titler.

It was put on by Team Teddy of Wisconsin, a student organization that usually helps children in hospitals.

The non-profit group's student president says they enjoy helping kids, but this fundraiser took on a whole new meaning.

"This time it puts it into perspective because it's someone who has directly impacted our life as a teacher. When we go to hospitals and see kids, it's inspiring. But to have it personally affect us, I think that put it into a new light," Jack Walker said.

Team Teddy is a student organization that gives kids in the hospital a chance to build their own stuffed animals. It started about four years ago and now involves more than 150 middle and high school students.
