Every year the Burnt Hills Ballston Lake (BHBL) girls high school lacrosse team hosts a dedication game. This spring, the team will be working with Be The Match to host a Get In The Game (GITG) event! This year marks Get In The Game’s 15th year, 2008 was the first year of GITG with 9 collegiate football teams. GITG now has 250+ teams and Burnt Hills is excited to be one of the first high school and lacrosse teams!
When Coach Kerner is not coaching lacrosse, she is working full time for Be The Match as an Engagement Specialist for Partnerships. Coach Kerner has witnessed the power of athletics first hand and is thrilled to bring it to her team.
The inspiration for this game comes from Coach Kerner’s friend and former high school lacrosse teammate, Olivia. Olivia is a marrow donor and through her process, inspired Coach Kerner to join the mission to save a life.
