PIQUA — Piqua High School Key Club is working to “Smash Out Cancer” with a special event prior to the Piqua/Tipp City Football game on Friday, Oct. 21, in front of Alexander Stadium.

Participants will have a chance to help fight cancer by taking a swing at a car for $1 each or six swings for $5, according to Kenna Bell, Key Club vice president. All proceeds will be donated to the Piqua City Schools Relay for Life team.

“My brother has cancer and our club wanted to support him, so we decided to do this to help fight the cause of cancer,” Bell said. “Younger kids will be able to use a hammer and those older will use a sledgehammer to put a dent in the car to cure cancer.

“We are grateful to Poling’s Auto Parts for donating the car and to Dick Lumpkin’s Auto Body, Inc. for transporting the vehicle to and from the stadium.”

Key Club is a high school youth group sponsored by the Piqua Kiwanis Club. Key Club promotes service in the community and develops leadership skills, according to Mark Wion, Kiwanis Club President and Key Club advisor.
