2016-01 - Classical High School Athletics

After learning that a fellow Classical High School student athlete was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, and that sixteen year old, James Greene, would have to undergo seventeen tough cycles of chemotherapy over ten months, along with six weeks of daily radiation, fellow students and friends decided to use their team work to #sharemetta.

Classical High School held a fundraiser during the 2015 fall sports season called "Go Green For Greene" where they sold t-shirts, had numerous bake-sales, did pledge sheets, and held raffles to raise money to go toward the family. With lots of care and hard work, they raised over six thousand dollars for the “Go Green for Greene” cause.

“I nominated my student athletes at Classical because of the way they came together as a community to support a fellow athlete in need,” states Head Field Hockey Coach Colleen Loughlin. All of the fall teams organized a game to play in honor of their classmate/ teammate that is currently battling cancer. They went above and beyond my expectations. I never imagined that they could raise over $6,000. I am so proud of the people they are. This wasn't just a student that stepped up but an entire sports department. They understood the importance of helping others in need.”
