Five year old Nathan Fish’s design will be on this year’s Kids for the Cure t-shirt, which will be given to children who participate in Wyoming’s annual Race for the Cure, being held in Cheyenne on August 11, 2012.
Race officials selected five finalists from the numerous designs entered from across the Wyoming. The designs by the five finalists were displayed at the Laramie County Library where people voted on their favorite designed. In addition to having his design on the Kids for the Cure t-shirts, Fish, a resident of Lusk, will be recognized on race day and receive two complimentary race applications and two invitations to the sponsor reception at the Wyoming Governor’s residence in Cheyenne.
