STRIKE back against cancer, there’s no time to SPARE!
By Emily Schuchart,
Spring Grove Area High School
Spring Grove Area High School junior, Emily Schuchart, has created a bowl-a-thon in memory of her friend, Jazmine Cope, who passed away in November after a battle with cancer. Bowl for Hope will be held on Jan. 9, from noon to 5 p.m. at the Hanover Bowling Centre, 1630 Broadway in Hanover. A snowdate has been set for Jan. 16.
Emily has undertaken the event as her graduation project. “I had originally decided to chair a fund raising event for the Hanover Relay for Life team, Crusaders for Hope. After I began planning this event, I was personally touched by the loss of a classmate and friend, Jazmine Cope. She passed away at age 14 from leukemia.”
All funds raised from this event will benefit the Hanover Relay for Life (via the American Cancer Society) and the Spring Grove Middle School mini-thon 2011. The mini-thon is raising money for the Four Diamonds Fund in its fight against pediatric cancer.
Interested bowlers will be able to purchase two games of bowling, plus shoe rental for only $10 during the Bowl for Hope event. Additional games can also be purchased at that time, which will benefit both organizations.
