Some Danbury area high schoolers are working to put an end to cancer. Immaculate High School’s Field Hockey team recently participated in a fundraising campaign for the National Foundation for Cancer Research. Sports teams across the country donate proceeds from at least one game to research charity.
Field Hockey Coach Matt Arinello says Play4theCure raised about $500. The team honored Watertown High School's coach during the game. Denise Brown is currently battling cancer. Arinello called it a great team bonding experience.
The National Foundation for Cancer Research is a cancer research charity dedicated to funding cancer research and public education relating to cancer prevention, earlier diagnosis, better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for cancer.
Immaculate won the Tuesday game versus Watertown High School.
