Discounted footballtickets available

Fans attending the Tri-West/North Montgomery football game this Friday may receive a discounted ticket by bringing a donation of used sports equipment to benefit Gear Gone Global.

GGG is a non-profit organization started by North Montgomery student Wesley Boone. Inspired to raise equipment for those less fortunate in third world countries, Boone has sent gear to children in Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Kenya and the Phillipines.

Through this drive, he hopes to send gear to children in Honduras, Sierra Leone, Haiti, Ecuador and Jamaica.

For more information, contact Boone by e-mailing to geargoingglobal@gmail.com or the North Montgomery assistant principal by e-mailing to mcox@nm.k12.in.us.
