At Southern vs. So. River Field Hockey Game:Teams Take a Shot at MS
Southern High School’s JV and Varsity field hockey players have teamed up to help find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) by hosting a “Stick it to MS” fundraiser at Southern’s home game against South River on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often debilitating autoimmune disease that affects approximately 400,000 men and women in the U.S. Parents of players, teachers and other family members at Southern are among those affected by this disease including Senior Goalie Hannah Daley whose mom has MS.
For the event, the girls and coaching staff have come up with a line-up of fun and memorable ways to recognize and raise money for those with MS including:
- Donate$25 and enter to take a shot on Southern’s goalie.
- Honor a friend or family member with MS by donating $30 to have their name read over the loud speaker.
- Give $50 and you and that special someone will be announced and walk onto the field to receive a flower
- Purchase a Stick it to MS t-shirt for $10
The JV team plays at 5:30 p.m. and Varsity at 7 p.m. There is a $5 admission fee, and MS donations will be accepted at the gate.
If you cannot make the event but still want to make a contribution, you can drop off a check at Southern High School anytime up until Oct. 9.
See you at the game.
