Great Hollow Middle School held its sixth annual Coaches vs. Cancer event on Oct. 13. The schools came together to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Thanks to donations from students, teachers, staff and parents, the event raised nearly $3,000.

With more than 240 student-athletes participating in a fall sport, and 278 student spectators, Great Hollow’s football, field hockey and boys soccer teams all competed while the cheerleading and kickline squads performed at halftime. Parents and students came out in full force to support the cause, while the members of the girls soccer and girls tennis teams walked around asking for donations. During the day, students wore yellow in honor of childhood cancer, and many of the students stayed after school to watch a game and support the cause.
