CSAA CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

FOOTBALL - VOLLEYBALL - CROSS COUNTRY
GOING FOR GOLD 

...sometimes that is how the sports' seasons appear to players, parents and coaches; like going for gold, yet for a child with pediatric cancer - that term has altogether different meaning.

Every 3 minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer
     4% federal funding for research is pointed toward pediatric cancer
     ONE (1) in 5 children with cancer will NOT survive

To raise awareness of those involved in this tough fight, CSAA Fall Sport will step up to make the month of September a highlight for "other kids" who are in a life and death situation.      

Teams who participate will be choosing to wear GOLD SOCKS during all team competitions this month. Teams are encouraged to be creative in other ways to bring attention to the cause: helmet stickers, wrist bands, banners, etc. 

Shively Sporting Goods is providing an order form to help secure the socks. You may use this form GOLD SOCKS to order for your team, but the orders are due by AUGUST 18. Thanks to all those who participate in this effort.
