Last weekend, the varsity football Rams designated their game against St. Dominic High School as their 12th annual Paint It Pink Game for cancer awareness.
In the past, the football team has used this opportunity to honor a member of the MICDS community (player, parent, faculty/staff) who has or is battling cancer. This year, the seniors on the team chose to honor someone close to them or their family who has had cancer. The coaches chose to honor a fellow coach and a huge part of our MICDS community, Coordinator of Student Engagement and Assistant Football Coach Greg Foster.
The team wore special socks to commemorate the day and collected donations. For the first time, they set up a fundraising page to make it easier for Rams football alumni and supporters who couldn’t attend to donate. The team goal was to raise funds to help improve the lives of people affected by cancer. Assistant Coach Kevin Collier created a digital program that includes heartwarming profiles and a link to the donation page.
Congratulations, Rams, on raising $4,000 for the American Cancer Society, and for winning the game 47 to 13. Thank you to all who donated.
