The Harborfields High School varsity softball team hosted a childhood cancer awareness game on May 2 against Hauppauge High School. The team not only honored fighters and the survivors but also raised nearly $500 through a bake sale, T-shirt sale and donations from game attendees.
Before the game players all donned golden shirts with “No One Fights Alone” written across the back. Additionally, team members showed their support for Harborfields sophomore Gabby Cava by standing together and raising signs that read “Team Gabby.”
Hauppauge also joined in supporting the game’s cause by wearing gold ribbon color for childhood cancer.
“This cause is very close to our community’s heart,” said John Valente, director of health, physical education and athletics. “We’re so proud of our student-athletes for rallying together to raise awareness and show support for those affected by this disease.”
