Communities rally to support Vermont state trooper battling brain tumor

SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Vermont State Trooper Dan Marcellus has spent his career serving and protecting the public; a job he considers both an honor and a privilege. In October, Trooper Marcellus was diagnosed with an inoperable, malignant brain tumor and is undergoing long-term treatment. On May 21, the 236 Benefit Golf Tournament was held at Crown Point Country Club in Springfield, Vt. to raise funds for the many expenses incurred when a serious illness strikes a family. One hundred forty-four golfers participated in the tournament, the majority being law enforcement and first responders from throughout the state. The response from community businesses and individuals to help Dan, his wife Jessica and infant son Sawyer Daniel was nothing short of phenomenal. Many thanks to the business and individual sponsors, individual donors, donations of goods and/or services and volunteers who combined to make this tournament a huge success. Many thanks also to the golfers, and those who took part in the golf shirt and golf towel sales, raffles and silent auction. You have all truly touched the hearts of the Marcellus Family.

Thank You!
