BATH — Morse High School girls’ soccer team recently raised nearly $2,000 this year for the American Cancer Society. The team has been involved in the Coaches vs Cancer program for several years, raising more money for the cause than any other high school team in Maine. To date, the team has raised more than $10,000.

For their Oct. 12 game against the Gardiner Tigers, the team wore pink for breast cancer awareness. In addition to collecting donations and pledges, they had bake sales, raffled off donated items, held a 50/50 raffle, had concession proceeds go toward the cause as well as sold cards for people to write the names of loved ones on and hang on the “wall of hope.” Soggy Dog Designs helped by sponsoring the efforts.

“This team’s ongoing support of the Coaches vs. Cancer program over the past six years has been invaluable,” said American Cancer Society Coaches vs Cancer Program Manager Brian Casalinova. “This has really become not just a team effort, but also one for the whole community. That sort of support is invaluable to the American Cancer Society’s life-saving mission.”
