The VKNation raised $4,360 to benefit the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children
We have all been affected in various ways from cancer and our goal as a school was to come together as a community to spread awareness and contribute towards cancer research.
On Friday, October 25th, our VKNation came together and recognized those who have battled, are currently battling cancer or have lost their battle with the disease. Players wore pink football jerseys inscribed on the back with the name of a cancer survivor, someone battling cancer, or someone who lost their life to cancer. Families and the players were introduced on the field at halftime. At the conclusion of the game the families received the jersey from the player whom they sponsored.
Through the efforts of our students and football families, St. Elizabeth School raised $4,360 to donate to the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children - surpassing last year's efforts of $3,000.
Our football seniors presented the check to RoseBevilacqua from the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children during morning assembly on Monday, Novemeber 4th.
