PULLMAN, Wash. - The Washington State University Track and Field throwers will hold their Fifth Annual Car Wash Saturday, September 23, in downtown Pullman, and this year the team is also collecting disposable diapers, as well as cash donations, to be given to the Pullman Community Action Center.
The Cougar throwers have conducted very successful car washes the past four years, with donations totaling $5,100. Every year the car wash has benefited a local community member with the spring 2006 car wash benefiting Eric Nygard, a WSU track and field athlete, with medical expenses related to his cancer treatment.
"We are so grateful to the Pullman community and its support of the Cougar throwers the past four years," WSU throws coach Debra Farwell said. "The people who have received the donations from our car washes are truly deserving and we are happy to help the Pullman Community Action Center this year."
The Washington State javelin, discus, shot put and hammer throwers will put their muscles to work from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday, September 23, at the Bank of America parking lot, 425 East Main Street, in Pullman. The Pullman Chevron Gas Station is donating the water used for the car wash.
Those unable to stop by the car wash can donate by contacting Debra Farwell at 509-335-0260.
