Michelle Richardson, this year’s recipient of Stephenville High School’s annual “Coaches for a Cure” fundraiser, gets a hug and some flowers from Alee McClendon, one of the SHS girls basketball players, Friday in Gandy Gym. The SHS varsity boys and girls players gathered around Richardson on the court as she was introduced to the large crowd.

This year’s Coaches for a Cure effort, including funds raised through live and silent auctions for baked goods, T-shirts and donations at the door, raised $6,300 for Richardson. She was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma on Sept. 9.
