The News TribuneMay 5, 2014 

Students and staff from Woodland Elementary, Ballou Junior High, and Rogers High schools have raised thousands of dollars this spring to support 16-year-old Taylor Desmet, who was diagnosed in February with lymphoma.

Taylor, a sophomore at Rogers, previously attended Woodland and Ballou.

Woodland has sold “Taylor Tough” T-shirts and colorful bracelets, and also held a school assembly and showed a video to educate students about Taylor. Ballou has also sold T-shirts and held a fundraiser dance.

Rogers students and staff are also selling shirts and bracelets and will host a fundraiser May 22. On that day, the school will host a “Student vs. Teacher Taylor Tough” softball game and silent auction.

The game is from 4-6 p.m. at Heritage Recreation Center, adjacent to Rogers High School at 9010 128th St. E., Puyallup.
