Northern Dutchess ‘Coaches vs. Cancer’ Classic
Bard College’s Stevenson Gym, Saturday, December 18, 2010
Girls Varsity at 5pm vs Millbrook
Boys Varsity at 7pm vs Millbrook
The athletic departments at Millbrook, Pine Plains, Red Hook, and Rhinebeck High Schools, in conjunction with the American Cancer Society and Bard College, will be sponsoring the 1st Annual Northern Dutchess Coaches vs. Cancer Classic. On Saturday, December 18th these four schools will come together to compete in Varsity Boys and Girls Basketball games at Bard College in Annandale-on-the Hudson.
The goal of the day is to enjoy good-spirited competitive basketball games while raising awareness of healthy living, and to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer. Last year in the Hudson Valley, local Coaches raised over $15,000 for American Cancer Society programs that help cancer patients in their county to get well and stay well. We hope that the 1st Annual Northern Dutchess Coaches vs. Cancer Classic will be able to add to this total.
Coaches vs. Cancer is a nationwide collaboration between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) that empowers basketball coaches, their teams, and local communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer.
Schedule for the day:
1 PM – Varsity Girls Red Hook vs. Pine Plains (Pine Plains home)
3 PM – Varsity Boys Pine Plains vs. Red Hook (Red Hook home)
