BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. – Briarcliff High School athletes helped raise funds and participated in the American Cancer Society’s recent Making Strides Against Breast Cancer annual walk at Manhattanville College.
“We had coaches and athletes from the varsity field hockey and junior varsity volleyball teams participate this year,” said physical education coordinator A.J. Thau, who spearheads the effort each year.
In addition to participating in the walk on Oct. 18, athletes and Briarcliff High School faculty members raised funds to donate to the American Cancer Society as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The varsity and junior varsity volleyball teams each hosted a “pink” match, during which they hosted bake sales to raise additional funds.
In total, Briarcliff Manor Union Free School District students, staff and families donated $1,726.55 to the American Cancer Society.
“It was another successful year of raising funds for a worthy cause,” said Thau. “The girls have a great understanding of the importance of showing support in the fight against breast cancer.”
