NEGU Team Captain, Kurt!
High school football teams all over Orange County are suiting up for their annual homecoming game. The Capistrano Valley High School Cougars celebrated this special week with lots of school spirit, a fun rally and a great game against Dana Hills High School.
This year, the Capistrano Valley football team, welcomed their newest team member to the roster this week, 9-year old courageous fighter Kurt! Kurt, a Yorba Linda resident, joined the Capo Valley team all week in preparation for their big game. In fact, Kurt played such a big role in the team’s game-day preparations, that he was named Honorary Team Captain for the week! Joining the team at their pre-game dinner, helping at practice and standing side-by-side with the team on game day, Kurt was instrumental in making sure his team was well prepared for their special game.
Kurt is currently in the remission stage of his fight with leukemia and he will never ever give up! if you would like to send NEGU Team Captain Kurt a message of encouragement, please do so on his facebook support page Kourageous Kurt!
A big thank you to courageous fighter Kurt for all of his hard work in serving as his role of NEGU Team Captain for the Capo Valley Cougars. And a big thank you to the Capistrano Valley High School football team for welcoming Kurt in as part of your own, and for giving him this one-of-a-kind, special opportunity to put leukemia aside for a while and to do something fun!
