Play4TheCure Feature Stories

Play4TheCure would not be successful without the teams that dedicate games and the individuals who spend numerous hours fundraising for cancer research. Below are some highlights from our teams and their fun fundraising ideas. For more ideas visit our Fundraising page.

Tyngsborough High School Boys Basketball

Students Natalie Barros, Megan Barulli, Casey Butler and Stephanie Souza hosted a Play4TheCure fundraiser at the boys’ basketball game on Wednesday, February 6, 2019. To raise awareness and funds, organizers (1) distributed iPlay4 signs to honor those affected by cancer; (2) collected spare change and donations during homeroom; (3) hosted a bake sale and concessions stand which included homemade sweets and pizzas donated by a local pizza shop; and (4) designed and sold custom bracelets and t-shirts. Most notably, the students organized a “Chuck-a-Duck” contest. In this contest, game-attendees could purchase a rubber duck for $1 then, at half-time, attempt to throw the rubber duck into a bucket on the basketball court. Through their hard-work and dedication, Natalie, Megan, Casey and Stephanie raised over $430. Thank you, ladies!
