---- — To the Editor:
We are writing to once again thank the Rush County community for their wonderful support of the Jason D. Kuhn Memorial Golf Scramble. This year we were able to reach our goal of $50,000 to be given to the Rush Memorial Hospital Cancer Unit. In all, the golf scramble has netted over $100,000 in the last 14 years thanks to the generosity of our friends, family and community.
Thanks, too, to the wonderful sponsors who have been so generous in their support. Many did not know Jason personally but still reached out to support the fight against cancer.
Finally, we cannot say enough good things about Andy and Brooke (Harris) Wilson, Marc and Emi Steczyk, and Adam and Kendra Decker. Andy and Jason developed a friendship when they met at Arlington Junior High School, and Marc and Adam met Jason at Franklin College where they were fraternity brothers. Their friendship endured the tough road as Jason battled Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, and it continues to this day through their tireless work to keep Jason’s memory alive through the golf scramble. Jason would be so humbled and gracious to know that his friends cared so much, even with the demands of their own work and families.
We look forward to continued success in the future as we work with the Rush County School Legacy Foundation to support education in our community.
