The Amity Girls and Boys Basketball Teams joined together with the Amity Student Government to run a “Coaches vs. Cancer Event” at Amity HS. Activities began with a Cancer Awareness Fair, sponsored by the PE & Health Departments.
The fair was held during all lunch waves. Table sponsors included, Griffin Hospital, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, American Cancer Society, American Lung Association, Pet Partners & Relay for Life. Students had the opportunity to travel from table to table gaining valuable information on cancer.
That same afternoon, a “Celebration of Life” pep rally was held where the Amity Choir, Theatre Group, Band & Dance Team entertained the school.
Finally the Girls & Boys’ Basketball Teams competed against Shelton in a basketball double header.
More than $4,000 was raised through these various events for the Cancer vs. Coaches Program.
