Coleman-During the Nov. 27 meeting of the Coleman School Board, Superintendent Doug Polomis gave a summary of how Mrs. Tricia Zeitler and Mrs. Nikki Kaiser started the Tackle for Cancer event. This was the 5th year of the event where it has grown tremendously over the years. Zeitler and Kaiser have been able to directly impact the lives of 15 ladies and their families and also have given monetary donations to BAMC Oncology Unit for screening. The event has shown the students of Coleman School District the impact that giving back to the community can have. Zeitler and Kaiser who were present at the meeting, raised over $75,000 in the past five years. Polomis presented the ladies with flowers as a thank you for their efforts and all present at the meeting agreed that this event has brought the community together.
