Blood drive in memory of Ariah Cook a success

A blood drive held in honor of the late Ariah Cook produced 63 pints of blood donated in Ariah’s memory on Aug 17 at Athens Area High School. Cook passed away in March at the age of six after courageously battling cancer. “Thank you to everyone who participated to help make this blood drive so successful,” a representative from Kids Can’t Fight Cancer Alone, who sponsored the event, said. “Thank you to Morgan Cummings, Phoenix Jacobson, Olivia Demas, Cora Weldy, Timmy Ward and Joel Schoonover for taking time out of your day and volunteering your time to work at this blood drive. Thank you to Athens Area School District for providing your facilities and helping us to set up — thank you, JB Sullivan. Kristy Elliott Mosier, we are so thankful for your constant support in coordinating this drive. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to donate items for the Ronald McDonald house ... Happy Birthday Ariah.” Pictured here are Timmy Ward and Joel Schoonover.
