Team Burroughs

Team Burroughs attended the Aug. 18 “Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Day” at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. The team consists of Bryce and Carter Burroughs (pictured in front, from left), and (back row, from left) Kasi Burroughs, Kyle Burroughs, Richard Burroughs, Kathy Burroughs, Mary Turpin and Joe Turpin. Team member Dawn Kotva was not present.

Richard is a retired Waterloo School District teacher and current Columbia resident who was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2009 and is presently in remission. The team has raised more than $2,000 for the LLS “Light the Night” walk his team will participate in on Sept. 28 at Forest Park. Donations to the team or individual members can be made online at http://pages.lightthenight.org/gat/StLouis12/TeamBurroughs, or by calling 618-581-5080. (submitted photo)
