On December 17 and 18, the girls and boys basketball teams at Lakewood Park Christian School in Auburn hosted a Coaches vs. Cancer fundraiser. A hot dog and chili supper was offered before the games, with the free will donation to our organization. On Monday, the boys’ team served dinner while the girls’ team played, and on Tuesday, the girls served while the boys played.
I took our cancer ribbon banner and ribbons so people could wear them in support of those they knew with cancer. On both nights, attendees willingly pinned on ribbons in support of family and friends and the gym was filled with ribbon sporting fans.
It was such an uplifting experience to spend time with these young adults who have adopted helping others as one of their goals.
Thank you Lakewood Park Christian!
