'Go Blue' written in sky sparks fundraising effort
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The words "Go Blue" written in the sky near Spartan Stadium before last weekend's Michigan State football game have sparked a fundraising campaign that's raising thousands of dollars to fight cancer.
Scott Westerman, executive director of the MSU Alumni Association, was among the fans at Saturday's game against Youngstown State in East Lansing who saw the big message - a reference to the colors of Michigan State's in-state rival Michigan.
Westerman, a pilot, estimated it cost a University of Michigan supporter a few thousand dollars to needle Michigan State fans. In response, Westerman started encouraging people to donate some green online to the Michigan Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
Westerman's wife, Colleen, is a two-time ovarian cancer survivor who received care at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center.
