What:     Bartosz, a sophomore at Arrowhead High School, created Gold In September® after watching her twin brother, Jack, battle cancer for seven years. With Jack’s passing at the age of ten, Bartosz turned her grief into action. She became determined to turn the world gold in September, with gold and September being the nationally recognized color and month for childhood cancer awareness.
                                   
The Arrowhead High School varsity football team and their opponent, Kettle Moraine High School, will encourage fans to wear gold as part of Bartosz’s dream to see the world turn gold in September for childhood cancer awareness. In addition, Bartosz will address the crowd and both teams will host a fundraising “miracle minute”.
