High School field hockey players raise money for breast cancer fund

The Wells High School girls field hockey team recently raised $320 to benefit the Breast Cancer Living Will Fund at York Hospital.

The funds came from the sale of breast cancer awareness T-shirts donated by parents.

Shirts, purchased by team members, were worn during a home game that was recognized as a “Breast Cancer Awareness” event.

The donation was given to representatives of York Hospital at another home game. Present to receive the check was Dr. Amanda Demetri Lewis, D.O.

The Breast Cancer Living Will Fund provides support to those who have been diagnosed with, are undergoing treatment for, or are recovering from breast cancer at York Hospital through programs centering on the mind, body and well being.
