Helping to do their part in “kicking” cancer to the curb, Great Hollow Middle School in the Smithtown Central School District held its eighth annual Coaches vs. Cancer event on Oct. 4. Both on and off the athletic fields, Great Hollow Middle School’s students, faculty, coaches and spectators joined together in the fight against cancer.
Throughout the day, students and faculty dressed in yellow to show their awareness of childhood cancer. As part of the fundraising event, students could purchase a t-shirt or a wristband for an entrance on one of several games taking place that afternoon. The field hockey, football, and boys and girls soccer took to the field to support the cause. Great Hollow’s kick line and cheerleaders performed during halftime. The school and community raised about $2,400 and the money collected was donated to the Ronald McDonald House.
