PULLMAN, Wash. -- Discus, hammer, shot put and javelin throwers from the Washington State University and the University of Idaho track and field teams will join together Saturday, Oct. 18, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Furniture Center parking lot in Moscow for their second annual car wash.
Last year the men's and women's teams raised $1300 for Eastern Washington University thrower Ty Weingard who needed the funds for a kidney transplant.
This year, the teams will be raising money for the Whitman County Transplant Fund and all donations will benefit Robert Fogelson, of Rosalia, who is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Fogelson has a wife and two children and has lived in Whitman County for 14 years.
While most transplant surgeries are covered by medical insurance, the insurance usually covers only part of the total cost and will not pay for the donor's medical expenses.
The throwers will be scrubbing and buffing at the Furniture Center parking lot, 630 West Pullman Road, Moscow, Idaho, Saturday, Oct. 18, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Those not able to get to the car wash can make a donation be contacting Debra Farwell at 335-0260, or Andrea Thornton at 335-8843.
