The VKNation raised $4,067 to benefit both the Helen Graham Cancer Center and the Pancreatic Cancer Organization.
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 1st, 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 a total of $4,067, $2,033.50 each towards the Helen Graham Cancer Center and the Pancreatic Cancer Organization.
Our football athletes of the week presented the check to Laura Mackler from the Christiana Care Helen Graham Cancer Center during morning assembly on Tuesday, November 2nd.
