This past summer, Hill students were recognized by a grateful American Cancer Society (ACS) for their fundraising efforts during the 2010-11 academic year. Thanks to the hard work of students, faculty, and staff, The Hill community contributed $9,000 to the ACS. These funds were collected during The Hill’s Skate for a Cure and Relay for Life fundraisers.
Skate for a Cure was held on February 12, 2011 in the Edward Tuck Ice Hockey Arena. The event, which was open to students and the general public, offered skate rentals for $2, as well as homemade baked goods, pizza, raffle baskets donated by parents and friends of The Hill, and t-shirt sales. A total of $7,856.94 was raised at the event, which was organized by Dylan Fox ’11, Marcello DeAngelis ’11, and Samantha Hernan ’11. These hard-working students were guided by their faculty adviser, Courtney Neese ’00.
On Saturday, April 30, 2011, The Hill community gathered on the Quad to support the Relay for Life club’s annual fundraising efforts. The club hosted a bake sale, raffled baskets, and sold Relay for Life t-shirts. Two bands provided music for the night, with Ryan Clausen ’07 on drums. The event raised a total of $1,254.06 for the ACS.
The American Cancer Society is an international organization dedicated to cancer research, improving the lives of those affected by cancer, and helping people stay well through prevention and early detection. The Hill is proud to support the fight against cancer.
