Kettle Run High School Supports the Leigh Family
7403 Academic Avenue, Nokesville | 6:30 – 9:30pm

Please come out as the Kettle Run Cougars Football team take on Liberty and show your support for the Leigh Family as their son Kaleb battles cancer for the 3rd time. Kaleb was originally diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 6 and went through 2 1/2 years of treatment and relapsed at age 9 and went through treatment again. After finishing treatment his younger brother Noah was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma just 11 months later. Our amazing community came together for this family and helped raise a ton of money for Noah for his protocol treatment that came from Europe. Kaleb has relapsed and is battling cancer for the 3rd time. The emotional and financial toll this has on the family is enormous. Let’s show Kaleb, Noah and the rest of the Leigh family how much this community is backing them and loves them. There will be some great raffle items planned for that night to raise money to support the Leighs as well as raise awareness for Childhood Cancer. Together we can all show the Leigh family that we #BeLEIGHve!!!!!!
