COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A fund set up for the Chapin High School student severely injured during a lacrosse game continues to grow. 

Jack Enright, a junior, broke his neck in a game against Lexington High School and underwent surgery to repair part of his spinal column. 

Since then, the Chapin community has rallied around the teen, raising money and awareness. GoFundMe page was set up by the teen's cousins, Spencer Guillette and Janie Buford, has grown so much, they keep raising the goal. More than $28,000 has been raised of the $30,000 goal. 

The cousins have already updated the page once and say Jack's spirits have been lifted by the support of the community and visits from lacrosse players from Limestone College and the University of South Carolina. 

"This, along with all of the visitors, the outpouring of support locally from the Chapin Community and beyond, and all of the prayers has been what is getting us through this difficult time," Guillette wrote.

The cousins say Enright is receiving treatment at Shepard's Spine Rehabilitation Center in Atlanta.
