(Fargo, ND) -- Normally rivals, a pair of local cross country teams are banding together Thursday to support one of their own.

The Cross Country teams from Fargo South and Davies High Schools will be hosting a joined car wash and bake sale at the Family Fare off 25th Street South to benefit Clara Motschenbacher.

Clara, who is a Freshman Cross Country runner at Fargo South, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in May and has gone through chemotherapy and needs to do radiation therapy as well.

Each year the teams host a fundraiser and donate the bake sale funds to a local community member in need, with this year's event focused on supporting Clara's battle with Cancer.

Motschenbacher says she plans to attend the fundraiser for a while, and even help wash some cars too. The event takes place from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday.
