CONCORD -- After three months of planning, Concord School held five successful Coaches versus Cancer PINK games on Feb. 7. The effort, which included the participation of all the coaches, staff, concessions and spectators pulling together to fight against cancer, raised $500 to go to the American Cancer Society.
Concord's Coaches vs. Cancer day was held at the school's Dickson Gym and included varsity and middle school boys and girls teams as well as the 3rd-, 4th- and 5th-grade teams.
"The American Cancer Society is very grateful for the hard work and support they received from the Concord School and would like to thank Athletic Director Karl Goulding for their participation in the Coaches vs. Cancer program," said Community Events manager Brian Casalinova.
