SYLVANIA, OH (TOLEDO NEWS NOW) - Friends and family of Melissa Belcher as well as people who don't know her as well got together to honor the Northview math teacher who is battling ALS.
A fundraising soccer game was held Wednesday to raise money that will be put in a college fund for her children.
People who know her say Belcher's spirit has been an inspiration and they wanted to give something back.
The goal was to raise $3,000, and the tallies at the end of the game were around $4,700 and could go up from there.
