Orangeburg, N.Y. (1/18/19) The Dominican College men's basketball team has teamed up with the Go4theGoal, a national pediatric cancer non-profit organization, and will sponsor a Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer Game on February 16th.
On February 16th in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) game against Goldey-Beacom College, the Chargers basketball team and coaching staff have purchased and will wear yellow laces on their sneakers during the game. The purchase of the laces allows 80% of the total cost to benefit kids with cancer and their families.
The Chargers have also created an online fundraising page where people can donate and 100% of all donations are used to benefit kids with cancer and their families in the state of New York. To donate online please go to: https://donate.go4thegoal.org/team/206254.
The mission of Go4theGoal is to improve the lives of children battling cancer by providing financial support, developing and implementing unique hospital programs, funding innovative research, and granting personal wishes. Through our first-hand experience with pediatric cancer and our medical background, Go4theGoal provides the best practices to patients, their families, and the hospitals and staff that care for them.
