Tattnall residents plan events to help sick child

Posted: Updated:

Friends of Micah Smiley and his family are organizing a month of events to raise money to help with the five year old's battle with cancer.

They're kicking off a March for Micah on March 1 with raffles and giveaways at Your Choice Satellites starting at noon. 

A March for Micah family day is March 16 beginning at noon with live entertainment, exhibits, a 5k race, and more. Shelby Branch, one of the organizers, told WTOC they hope to have a complete list of sponsors by Monday, February 25 to list them on T-shirts printed for the event. She says people have come together to help the family.

"If it were my child, I know Micah's parents would be doing the same thing for us because that's how they are," she explained. "In Tattnall County, we may be fighting six months ago or six months from now, but right now we're pulling together to help one of our own.
