A La Porte High School student spent months building 580 crosses. Tristen Nowak plans to erect them all at this weekend’s 4th Annual Snowdrop ULTRA 55-Hour Race and Relay in Sugar Land.
Nowak said the crosses represent the number of children who will die from pediatric cancer in the same time-frame. He spoke with Eyewitness News about the project.
“It took several months. It took a majority of my Thanksgiving break, a majority of Christmas break. It took weekdays and weekends,” said Nowak. “My hope is that they realize the impact of what they’re doing.”
