The Hastings Police Department presented a check to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital with the proceeds funds raised in the Hastings Cops versus Hastings Teachers fundraising game in honor of five-year-old Leo Loeks. More than $6,200 was raised and donated to Helen DeVos where Leo, the son of Megan and Bill Loeks of Hastings, goes for treatment of leukemia.
Pictured at the presentation are, from left, Police Chief Jeff Pratt, Sgt. Kris Miller, Laurie Alighire, program coordinator for Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, and Amy Smelker, Star School Elementary principal. Pratt thanked “everyone involved who made the fundraiser a very successful event.”
