Middleton fire and police departments raise money for local family

Over $4,500 raised for Helmuth family

The Middleton Fire and Police Departments were brought together for a softball game to raise money for a local family.

The “Battle of the Badges” showcased the department’s teams as they raised money for the Helmuth family.

James Helmuth, age 10, was diagnosed with cancer in February and his family is overwhelmed with the amount of support they’ve received since.

“It’s been an overwhelming, outpouring from the community of support, for us as a family, for James and his fight against cancer,” said Jeff Helmuth, James’ father.

The event raised $4,500 for James and his family.

James will continue treatments this fall
