Fundraiser for Anthony Cox set

A fundraiser to help Anthony Cox Jr.’s family with medical expenses will take place during the Caterpillar’s Hookah Lounge’s 5 year anniversary celebration from 6 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, at 314 S. Carson Street. Bonnie Long has a vendor set up during the event for Cox and proceeds will be donated to his family. Earlier this summer Anthony had a 16-hour surgery to remove the tumor from his brain. His family learned the following week the tumor is a choroid plexus carcinoma, which is cancerous and has a 100 percent chance of coming back with the chance of being in-operable. He’s currently undergoing chemo and radiation treatment to hopefully remove the cancer cells forever.

The contest is open to all children ages 9 to 14 years old enrolled in public, private, territorial, tribal, Department of Defense and home schools. Children can also enter through a sponsoring club, such as an art, computer, library, reading, science, scouting, youth or 4-H club.

Posters should convey one of these messages: 1) What is radon? 2) Where does radon come from? 3) How does radon get into our homes? 4) Radon can cause lung cancer, and 5) Test your home for radon. Posters will be judged on content accuracy, visual communication of the topic, reproducibility and originality. There is no fee to enter, but each child is limited to one entry. Entries must be received at 4955 Energy Way in Reno by Oct. 31. Cash prizes for the top five entries are $75 for first place, $60 for second, $45 for third and $25 for fourth and fifth place. The top three entries are also awarded cash prizes for their teachers or sponsoring organization’s representative and are entered in the national contest. National contest winners receive $1,000 for first place, $600 for second, $400 for third and $400 for special online voting recognition. National winners will receive recognition, and the posters will be reproduced and distributed nationally to promote radon awareness. The Nevada Radon Education Program will also offer radon presentations to interested school or community groups in Washoe, Douglas and Carson Counties. The poster contest is part of the Nevada Radon Education Program and is sponsored by Cooperative Extension, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health, Kansas State University and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
