The COVID-19 outbreak has robbed our high schools of their spring sports seasons, but Mount Hebron and Centennial lacrosse teams have since started the #SUITUP challenge while coming together to raise money for ZACF!
The Suit Up Challenge is pretty simple. Suit up in the gear from the sport or hobby that you miss right now, put it on social media, then nominate three people to do the same.
Normally early April is when the Mt. Hebron boys lacrosse team hosts its Fight for Five tournament. It's an annual tourney in memory of Vikings alum Evan Nicholson. He passed away from Leukemia in 2008 at age 20. The tournament raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
This isn’t a normal early April. This year's Fight for Five Tournament was canceled. Competitive sports are on hold... but not competitions."Everyone is missing out on sports or any hobbies that they have. So, we were just trying to make something applicable to everybody," said Mt. Hebron senior Mateo Brown.This year instead of suiting up on the field they are suiting up online against their biggest rival. It’s Mt. Hebron vs. Centennial in the Suit up Challenge.
To date, the teams have raised over $50,000 for ZACF!
In honor of ZACHING DAY 2020 we would like to keep the #SUITUP Challenge going!
We are asking everyone to #SUITUP and #GIVEBACK to Zach on what would be his 27th birthday this year!
