SPAGHETTI DINNER BENEFIT – Owosso High School hosted a fundraiser for former student, Cody Greger, Wednesday, March 2 before the varsity boys basketball district game against Flint Kearsley. The proceeds are to go towards Greger’s recovery, as he is still a patient in the
U of M Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit in Ann Arbor. Greger was initially taken to Hurley Medical Center for treatment of injuries sustained in a fire on November 15 in Owosso.
Greger graduated from Owosso High School in 2012, where he played varsity basketball, baseball and soccer. He was named the MVP of the soccer team in 2010, and was named to all-conference baseball and basketball teams in 2012.
In addition to the proceeds from the dinner, Coach Dave Owens and the varsity basketball team donated their share of the night’s 50/50 drawing to Cody. The family has started a GoFundMe page titled “Cody Greger Medical/Family Expenses,” and they are selling “Cody Strong” t-shirts, which can be purchased by emailing Karen Richmond at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The family was treated to a visit during the benefit dinner from Owosso Police Officer Branden Stockford, who was the hero that pulled Cody and his friend Nate Hall from the burning house. He is shown here with many of Cody’s family members during the dinner. (Courtesy Photo)
