Students from New Hyde Park Memorial High School raised money for the American Cancer Society through participation in three on three basketball games, which were held at the school on Nov. 12-13.
The event, organized by New Hyde Park teacher Donald Rood, raised $875 for the Coaches vs. Cancer program, a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches.
To participate in the games, each team contributed $40, which will be donated by the school at a Coaches vs. Cancer junior varsity tournament at New Hyde Park Memorial on Dec. 3-5. New Hyde Park students will also take part in a varsity event at East Meadow High School.
