The Salisbury High School football program has joined the PLEDGE IT fundraising driving as part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and the Touchdowns Against Cancer rogram.
Salisbury head coach Andy Cerco and members of the football team were at a press conference in the Pennsylvania State Capitol Rotunda on Thursday to launch the Touchdowns Against Cancer fundraiser in partnership with MaxPreps and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
“Our players decided in March that they wanted to focus their community service this year on pediatric cancer in our area,” Cerco said in a press release. “This opportunity gave us an chance to take our community service to another level in looking at helping raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.”
Fans of a particpating team can donate a designated amount for every touchdown scored by their team from Sept. 15 to Oct. 1. Funds will benefit St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital according to the release sent out by PLEDGE IT.
