The color orange filled the Dukes stadium Friday in support of freshman Landry Cole at the Wellington-Oberlin varsity football game.

Orange balloons lined the fence around the field and every single student wore orange in support of their fellow classmate.

Cole was diagnosed with brain cancer last December when doctors found two tumors in her brain. One was removed and another shrunk during treatment last year, but the tumors caused her to be legally blind.

Cole’s classmates have been organizing fundraisers and different events through the year to support their friend and her family.

Students have tie-dyed shirts orange (Cole’s favorite color), held a dinner where everyone had to eat blindfolded, and even held a 5K run. Wellington Dukes sports teams have done their part by choosing orange-out games to show support.
