$1200 Raised For Local Athletic Boosters

Release Date: September 26, 2012

Everyone came away a winner following the first Country Roads Physical Therapy “Booster Battle.”

The athletic programs of Fairmont Senior High School and East Fairmont High School received $600 each following a sold-out performance during the Sept. 8 lunch battle. A total of 300 pulled pork meals sold out in just one hour.

The success means the event will become an annual tradition, co-owner Michael Barkley said.

“We’re incredibly pleased with the response from both the Bees and the Polar Bears,” Barkley said. “Country Roads takes pride in being an active part of its community, and we know these donations will be put to good use.”

Fairmont Senior High is putting its funds toward athletic transportation for all of their student-athletes. East Fairmont High School will be putting its funds toward a school-wide conditioning program.

“All parties are discussing the future plans for this event and we are excited to both host again and increase the number of meals we sell, thereby raising more money,” Barkley said. “The principals and athletic director expressed their appreciation for the effort, and we’re happy to help out.”
