Student-Athletes Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month

On Oct. 14, our junior varsity and varsity girls’ volleyball teams hosted St. John’s Prep, Astoria, in “Dig Pink” games in support of The Side Out Foundation for breast cancer research. All game admission, raffles and concession sales were donated to breast cancer-related charities.

The girls’ soccer team ran a “Kick Out Breast Cancer” fundraiser, which raised over $2,500.

The cheerleaders took part in the Prospect Park Breast Cancer Walk Oct. 16 and have been selling ribbons at school lunch periods. The step team held a bake sale to help the cause.

On Oct. 20, our first  student vs. faculty volleyball game completed the fundraising events, in which all of the school’s girls’ sports teams participated. Highlights of the game are posted on our Facebook Page

In all, we expect to give over $5,000 to breast cancer-related charities this fall. Thank you to all our students, parents, alumni, faculty, and staff who supported this important cause!
