One of the team members, Eliza Elbaum, is the president of the CT 22 Club. With the help of her teammates and coaches they selected a date for the event, designed and ordered shirts to wear for the game warmup, publicized the event, and fundraised.
Approximately 8 hours were devoted to this event – organizing, designing the merchandise, publicizing it on various social media platforms, and setting up for the event. At the event, other high school CT22 members sold merchandise and snacks and beverages throughout the game.
The CT22 Club is a Horace Greeley High School club founded to honor the memory of Casey Taub, a Horace Greeley student and varsity soccer player (#22) who passed away in 2017 from brain cancer. The club’s mission is to raise awareness about pediatric brain cancer and funds for the Matthew Larson Foundation, a charitable organization promoting and fundraising for pediatric brain cancer research and providing support to families impacted by the disease.
Overall the event raised about $400 which will be donated to the Matthew Larson Foundation, in honor of Casey.
