I do love feel good stories, you know, the ones with happy endings. Emily Scheck is a Division I student-athlete at Canisius College in Buffalo, NY. Emily’s parents disowned her for being gay and her school’s community rallied around her to help. A Go Fund Me campaign put her Cross Country Scholarship at risk with the NCAA until Cyd Zeigler at Outsports.com told her story. Thankfully the NCAA did the right thing and Emily will never have to worry about her tuition, books or food.The campaign for Emily is not longer accepting donations as it topped $100,000! The support for Emily proves there are amazing, caring people in the world. The campaign for Emily is not longer accepting donations as it topped $100,000!
