ZACHING DAY #SUITUPCHALLENGE

$60,235

Story

We are celebrating Zaching Day 2020 – Zach’s 27th birthday – with the #SuitUpChallenge.

Thanks to the Mt Hebron and Centennial High School men’s lacrosse teams for creating the challenge and raising more than $50,000 to date!

Suit up in the gear from the sport or hobby that you miss right now, post it on social media with a photo or video, then nominate three people to do the same.

$27 can go a long way in supporting a cancer patient in need especially now during this COVID-19 pandemic. For our immune compromised, COVID-19 is a very real health threat – in many cases, a deadly one. Unlike most healthy Americans, our immune-compromised clients struggle to do even CDC-approved tasks like go to the grocery store, but the economic impact is even greater because without work or benefits, many of our clients will struggle even more to pay bills, or access critical care or much-needed wrap-around support. Many are also now struggling financially due to lost jobs.

Your gift of $27 or more can help us provide a cancer patient with transportation to treatment, pay an overdue utility bill or rent, or purchase groceries.

About the #SuitUpChallenge

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, who passed away from Leukemia in 2008 at age 20. But this isn’t a normal early April. Due to COVID, this year's Fight for Five Tournament was canceled. Competitive sports are on hold... but not competitions. This year instead of suiting up on the field they suited up online against their biggest rival. Team members challenged friends, family and alumni to suit up in their favorite sports uniform, jersey or team jacket, post a photo or video then nominate three others to do the same. The two teams raised over $50,000!
