Bulls' mascot donates $500 to Cooper Wiese at Immaculata School

Posted February 28

The Durham Bulls’ mascot Wool E. Bull visited Immaculata School in Durham on Friday morning to donate $500 to Cooper Wiese.

— The Durham Bulls’ mascot Wool E. Bull visited Immaculata School in Durham on Friday morning to donate $500 to Cooper Wiese. Wiese, 7, is raising money for cancer research because he felt angry and helpless when he found out his cousin Patrick had bone cancer.

Cooper asked his mother how he could cure cancer. His mother told him that he could study to become a doctor or raise money for research. Cooper suggested that his classmates, the pupils at Immaculata, challenge the Durham Bulls to a baseball game as a fundraiser. Patrick, 21, is a baseball player, but his career was cut short by his cancer diagnosis.

Cooper also asked his classmates to donate money in pennies and he collected over $1,000. On Friday morning, the Immaculata School got a visit from Wool E. Bull. The Durham Bulls’ mascot donated $500 in quarters to Cooper and the Patrick Wiese Foundation to support cancer research. Wool E’s donation and visit to the school was a big hit. $500 in quarters is heavy though!
