On Tuesday in Bowie, community members can help support a Bowie High School athlete as he continues his fight with cancer.
According to the Bowie News, in July, Austin Cox was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, also known as childhood leukemia. Doctors gave the Bowie High junior a positive prognosis. After a week of chemotherapy, Cox was ready to go home. At Hoops for Hope, when the Bowie Jackrabbits take on City View, donations will be collected for Austin Cox.
Games begin at 4:40 at Bowie High School.
