Residents reach out to help Norwell cancer patient

Caroline Cronk, known as Calle, has touched hearts since she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in November. Her plight has inspired a Facebook site, a pep rally at the local high school, and a campaign led by kindergarten classmates to secure Calle a meeting with singer Taylor Swift. Her parents, Rachael and Kevin, founded Hope For Caroline, a nonprofit foundation, to offer support to families of children suffering from the same rare brain tumor. Now folks are launching a spring road race at Norwell High School to raise money for medical research. The event, Calle’s Miracle Run, will take place on April 7. For more information, visit
