Bond’s cancer research fundraiser surpasses $1,000

Mt. Vernon junior Trevor Bond’s football season might have ended early due to injury, but his Kick Children’s Cancer initiative continues.

The placekicker, who is sidelined after suffering a torn ACL, remains diligent in his pursuit to help raise money for pediatric cancer research, and his efforts have garnered more than $1,000 to date.

Though he is unable to accept pledges based on his 2016 football season points total, Bond is encouraging supporters to donate to his campaign.

Kick-It is a program of Flashes of Hope, designed to sponsor events or individuals dedicated to assist in the on-going funding for children’s cancer research.
