“There’s lots and lots of really good causes and charities,” Coach Fulmer told the Herald-Citizen. “You have to kind of pick and choose because you can’t do them all. Because I’ve had friends and family that have a kidney disorder, I have an interest in helping any way that I can. I’m glad to have the opportunity to come to Cookeville and have a chance to support this great cause … Not only do you raise funds like this for events, you also raise awareness,” Coach Fulmer said. “It’s a national and international problem and it hits home when someone in your family or a dear friend has to deal with it. You see the tough things the patient goes through, but it also affects the family.”
