‘Go Blue’ response raises $40K to fight cancer

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — More than $40,000 has been raised to fight ovarian cancer in a fundraising campaign that started after the words “Go Blue” were written across the sky above Michigan State University.

The skywriting drew attention from Michigan State fans at a Sept. 14 football game at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing. The skywriting was the work of Michigan State’s in-state rival, the University of Michigan. “Go Blue” is a Wolverines’ slogan.

MLive.com reports (http://bit.ly/1h0cFZk ) that as of Tuesday hundreds of people heeded the call from Michigan State Alumni Association executive director Scott Westerman to create something meaningful from the prank.

Westerman had wanted donations to match the several thousand dollars it cost the University of Michigan athletics department for the skywriting.
