Our View: Thumbs up to communities
rising to challenge for high schools
Thumbs up: To football fans and corporate sponsors who helped raise an estimated $60,000 Sept. 7 as part of the Castle Challenge. The fundraiser is in its 13th year, and the proceeds are split evenly among the booster clubs for DeKalb and Sycamore high schools. Those who bought tickets to the event at Huskie Stadium got to see a couple of football games and have a pregame tailgate dinner. Prep sports provide an outlet for young people to be involved and for the rest of the community to come together and be entertained at games. It’s good to see local people and businesses make sure these games remain enjoyable for fans and players in the future. The Castle Challenge continues through the DeKalb versus Sycamore basketball game in the spring.
