We had our entire varsity and JV teams help out with this fundraiser.
Play 4 The Cure is something that Section 8 has done for a long time. Each October, we raise money for breast cancer awareness. Each team can donate their total amount of donations to their own charity. We selected For All Who Fight which is a charity started by the Rix sisters, former Garden City field hockey players who beat their cancers.
The student-athletes ran bake sales in school as well as before and during field hockey games in October.
There was a lot of time and effort put into this by the girls and coaches. We made flyers in Canva and shared on our social media accounts. We also coordinated dates of bake sales with parents and our opponents.
