Weekend Roundup, October 13, 2017 | Ethel Walker Play Day

The weekend of October 13, 2017 more than a dozen teams will rally to Play4TheCure in support of cancer research, including the Ethel Walker School in Simsbury, CT who is hosting their annual Play4TheCure Play Day.

Introduced by Head Field Hockey Coach Mimi Duran who lost her father to cancer when she was 5 years old, the Play4TheCure Play day has been an Ethel Walker tradition for 5+ years. When her father passed, Coach Duran vowed to help raise awareness for cancer patients and their families. The Play Day allows all the members of the Simsbury community, as well as neighboring teams, to work together to support cancer research. Last year, the Ethel Walker Field Hockey team was able to raise nearly $6,000 for the cause. Below is a video the team created to thank everyone in their community for participating:

In 2015, Coach Duran was inducted into the Connecticut Field Hockey Hall of Fame heading into her 30th year of coaching. You can donate to the Ethel Walker Field Hockey Play Day efforts here: https://www.crowdrise.com/2017-ethel-walker-field-hockey-play-4-the-cure-playday

Good luck to all our teams dedicating a game to Play4TheCure this weekend including: Alvernia University, W.T. Clarke High School in NY, Milton Academy in MA, Shore Regional High School in NJ, Ranney School in NJ, Joel Barlow High School in CT, Mercy College, Methacton High School in PA, New Fairfield High School and Youth League in CT, Upper Dublin High School in PA, Morris Plains Soccer in NJ, and Hendrix College.

Corners for Cancer; A Legacy of Giving

When Maura Greenwood, a former field hockey player at Upper Dublin High School, shared the news that her mother had been diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer, she turned to her coach, Heather Boyer for support. That is the moment that Boyer sprang into action.  

“We can be doing a lot more than we are right now,” Boyer said of her team’s previous philanthropic endeavors of giving back to cancer research. Looking at the numbers, Boyer realized that if every member of her team raised just $100 together they would be able to contribute $3,500 back to cancer research, a significant contribution to the cause. Despite the fact that a large majority of the current Upper Dublin Field Hockey team roster had never played with Maura they all rose to the occasion to smash their original fundraising goal and raised over $7,000—setting the tone for a tradition heading into its ninth year.

In the early years of the event Mary Kay Greenwood, the mother of Maura, came and spoke at the games. Giving her the chance to thank everyone in the community for being involved and also to stress the importance of supporting cancer research. The team would also include an In Memory of or In Honor of page in their game program to acknowledge Mary Kay and everyone else in their community facing cancer. Mary Kay Greenwood has since passed, but her legacy and Upper Dublin’s Corners for Cancer still lives on.

Today, Corners for Cancer supports all types of cancer research, giving everyone on the team the chance to raise awareness for the cancer type that has affected them. To show this in 2016, each class wore a different color shirt: seniors wearing teal for ovarian cancer, the juniors in pink for breast cancer, the sophomores in white for lung cancer, the freshmen in periwinkle for stomach and esophageal cancers, and the coaches wearing gray for brain cancers.

How does the team raise so much money? Over the past five years alone, they have raised more than $27,000 to be donated to ALL types of cancer research in the efforts to find a cure for cancer. According to Boyer, “Last year’s senior were the first class to fundraise more than $10,000, so now this year’s seniors want to beat that.” Their success is the culmination of several initiatives throughout the season, many of which the senior class takes the lead on. For example, the team will host a coin drop at football games, allow teachers to donate to wear jeans for a day, sell t-shirts, and hold restaurant nights at which they receive a portion of the proceeds back from. Another large component of their fundraising is soliciting local businesses for support whether it be a cash donation or a physical item they can use for their game day raffle. New this year, the team will host a donation based car wash.

Because Corners for Cancer is such a long standing tradition in Upper Dublin, PA the Field Hockey team boasts the support of their administration to help spread the word to the local media throughout the district. As of last year, the senior class’ participation in planning and fundraising for Play4TheCure satisfied a graduation requirement serving as their culminating project in community service.

When it comes to game day, Boyer describes the atmosphere as powerful and inspiring. “As a coach you obviously want the team to go out there and play every game like it’s the last you might ever play.” But Corners for Cancer day puts things in a different perspective for the team, it reminds them “there are bigger battles in the grand scheme of life.” Year after year, Boyer and her team participate in Play4TheCure because “there’s always someone battling and supporting NFCR gives us the chance to help fund all different types of cancer, especially the rare ones that are less advocated for.”

This year’s Corners for Cancer event hosted by the Upper Dublin High School Field Hockey team will be on October 14th, 2017. You can support their efforts here: https://www.crowdrise.com/upper-dublin-field-hockey-corners-for-cancer1.

Burlington Township Field Hockey Play4TheCure 2017

In celebration of nearly a decade of support for the National Foundation for Cancer Research, Burlington Township High School in New Jersey will Play4TheCure again on October 11, 2017.

This year the team will also celebrate their Senior Night, honoring a group of young leaders who surely have a successful career to look back on. Over the past 4 years alone, Burlington Township has raised more than $12,000 for cancer research and they’re looking forward to improving their contributions again this year. 

October is breast cancer awareness month and Burlington Township, alongside hundreds of other teams will dedicate a game to raising awareness and funds to cancer research.

Playing 4 Trey

In 2014, a few short weeks after celebrating his 3rd birthday, Trey Fry was diagnosed with leukemia. Needless to say, this was a life-altering event for Trey and his family.

Like so many, Trey fought his way through several rounds of chemotherapy. His cancer even relapsed and Trey required a bone marrow transplant. Trey’s seven-year-old brother, was his donor. One year after his initial diagnosis, Trey was in remission and remains so today. 

Prior to his diagnosis, Trey was often found visiting and cheering on the York College Girls Field Hockey Team coached by his aunt Carly Zinn. To honor his recovery and raise awareness for childhood leukemia, the team rallied together to dedicate one special game to Trey.  

What began as a rally behind a young supporter’s fight against leukemia has become a yearly tradition. Each September, Zinn holds an #ORANGEOUT in honor of leukemia and children’s cancer awareness.

A New Tradition

Zinn now coaches at Dickinson College and has brought Trey and his fight with her. Even though the team at Dickinson wasn’t around to see Trey’s battle, they’re more than willing to support this courageous six-year-old.

As part of the tradition, Zinn’s team watches Trey’s story on a DVD. “It’s pretty intense and kind of a reality check” says Zinn.

To honor everyone they know that has been affected by cancer, Zinn asks the girls to fill out an ‘I Play 4’ sign. She says “It gives them extra motivation to play in that game.”

The team hangs their signs on the wall before being lead on to the field by their honorary captain for the day, which is Trey of course. As part of the team huddle, Trey can’t help but share the story about the goal he made in soccer that very morning. “Trey loves it and it’s great to see the girls with him, they have so much energy,” Zinn shares.

This boost in motivation and determination has translated to athletic success for these teams. According to Zinn, they always play extraordinarily well on Play4Trey day, so well in fact that one year when they held a goal pledge drive to raise money, the team scored 8 goals and now allow supporters to put caps on their pledges.

At this year’s game the team has a new goal in mind: get the community more involved. Outside of the t-shirt sales they usually do to raise money for leukemia research, the Dickinson Field Hockey team will provide a donation-based clinic open to the public immediately following their Play4Trey game.

The Impact

Over the past two years, Zinn and her teams at both York College and Dickinson College have raised nearly $5,000 to support leukemia research through NFCR’s Play4TheCure program. Along with donating the money they raise to cancer research, Zinn’s team collects and delivers toys to the patients at the Four Diamonds Hospital in Hershey, PA where her nephew Trey was treated for cancer.
