MARQUETTE, Mich. (WZMQ)- Tuesday night at the Marquette High School basketball game students and spectators wore orange in support of the weaver family.
Instead of having their usual 50/50 drawing, Marquette students went through the stands and collected donations for the weavers. basketball coach Richard Ledy says the sports community in the upper peninsula is small and tight knit. They are doing everything they can to support the family in the face of the tragedy.
Marquette wasn’t the only school to host an orange out on Tuesday. Superior Central, Manistique, and Gladstone all held their own events at sports games. Various other schools around the U.P. will be holding events and fundraisers for the weaver family throughout this week and next.
A GOFUNDME link has been set up to support the family.
