WINS for Cancer


During this spring’s high school baseball and softball season, Holy Cross H.S., Flushing, and The Mary Louis Academy, Jamaica Estates, teamed up for a fundraising campaign to support Sunrise Day Camp in Wyandanch, L.I., the only summer day camp in the country fully dedicated for children ages three-and-a-half through 16 with cancer and their siblings. As part of the WINS for Cancer Initiative, Holy Cross donated $10 for each CHSAA league win, and TMLA donated $20 for each GCHSAA league win, since baseball had twice as many games as softball. The high schools recently presented the camp with a check for $5,000.
