Our “Swish Away Cancer” game is a game dedicated to helping communities and promoting cancer awareness/research. We started this last season, after the passing of our JV Coach Mark Chase. He passed away, from cancer in December of 2020. Through fundraising, we plan to donate to local food banks (Mark’s request at his funeral, in lieu of flower arrangements), Meals on Wheels and Roswell Park Cancer Institute, all in Mark’s name.
Athletes were asked to donate baskets, if possible. 5 players/families donated
Many athletes purchased shirts, that were used as a fundraiser as well.
