Thursday April 7th the Rally Against Cancer will occur on the opening day of Major League Baseball

The Rally Against Cancer raises money for the Dana Farber Cancer Research Center and the Jimmy Fund in Boston and is sponsored by the Boston Red Sox. All money raised during this event goes directly to patient care and research that benefits all New England hospitals. 

On Thursday April 7th, please wear your favorite professional or college sports wear and donate to this great cause. The goal for the district is to raise at least $1000, which will go a long way to help those families in need. All donations are welcome and the more we raise, we may be eligible for items such as Red Sox merchandise, player visits, and game tickets. Let’s come together as a community, celebrate the sports teams we all love, and do some good for those around us.
