Greco raises over $1,500 for boy battling leukemia

Greco Stittsville hosted a fundraising fitness class on Saturday in support of Michael Meehan, a nine-year-old boy from Stittsville who’s undergoing intensive treatment for leukemia for the second time.

The event raised over $1500 to help the family with some of their expenses like gas, parking and meals while they’re at the hospital. The class was run by Matt Sicoli (one of the owners) and Kenny Caceros.

Another great example of people and businesses giving back to the community in Stittsville.
