On November 17, senior players representing the Forest Hills football team presented a $2,000 check to the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center. To raise funds, the team hosted a teacher and staff dress down day and the football boosters sold t-shirts at the annual Pink Out game on behalf of the team.
Their generous support helps fund Pink Ribbon Care, a program that provides assistance for patients who are unable to pay for breast-related health services – including mammograms, follow-up diagnostic services, and genetic counseling.
