South Jersey Field Hockey Team Raises $800 for Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center

The money raised will go toward the Cancer Center’s Hope and Healing Patient Assistance Fund, which helps oncology patients struggling to pay bills or in need of transportation during treatment.

For the second year in a row, the Glassboro Intermediate School girls’ field hockey team made a donation to the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center in Washington Township.

The team raised $800 in honor of Glassboro High School teacher and cancer survivor Michele Keating, who, in 2015, received treatment at the facility — which was then called Kennedy Cancer Center.

In 2016, the girls also donated $600 in honor of Ms. Keating. The girls’ field hockey coach, Gloria Byard, is a retired Glassboro High School teacher and former colleague of Ms. Keating.

The money raised, presented to the organization’s development department — the Kennedy Health Care Foundation — will go toward the Cancer Center’s Hope and Healing Patient Assistance Fund, which helps oncology patients struggling to pay bills or in need of transportation during treatment.
