About This Activity

Marjie Atkins has taught for 21 years in the Twin Falls School District.  She was teaching 8th grade History and coaching Cross Country at O'Leary Middle School when she was diagnosed with an aggressive, malignant brain tumor.   Marjie is a teacher that is one of the first to arrive at school and one of the last to leave.  She changed many students' lives in and out of the classroom.   
Marjie had the surgery to remove the tumor in Utah.  Although she had excellent doctors and care, she was left partially paralyzed and in need of extensive physical therapy.  Her insurance has "capped" out.  Marjie has many medical treatments ahead of her.  She is currently residing in Utah during her healing process. Please help in showing our gratitude for a remarkable teacher, mother, wife, friend, and person by participating in this fundraising event.
