WDC teacher part of 'Stand Up To Cancer' at Twins opener
Wadena-Deer Creek physical education teacher, Danielle Jetvig, is at today's Minnesota Twins home opener at Target Field where she recognized WDC's beloved teachers, Craig Klawitter and Mike Ortmann. Both teachers were diagnosed with cancer over the last few months.
During the game, the Twins and A's wore "Stand Up To Cancer" patches as a show of support for general manager Terry Ryan (diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma in early February) and all those impacted by cancer. In addition, both teams wore special SU2C caps during batting practice.
At the end of the second inning, the fans also joined players from both teams to "Stand Up To Cancer." Placards were distributed to fans as they entered Target Field, and fans were encouraged to personalize their placard with the name of someone they know who has been affected by cancer.
"It was just a cool addition to the Twins game," Jetvig said. "You could donate and they also did pictures and video on the jumbo screen of people holding up their signs at the end of the second inning."
