Byram Hills “Pink the Rink” Fundraiser Nets Nearly $14,000 for Breast Cancer Research

The Byram Hills Athletics Department is grateful to everyone who participated in the varsity ice hockey team’s seventh annual “Pink the Rink” game and fundraiser, which raised $13,817 for breast cancer research last week.

The fundraising effort included the sale of baked goods and “Pink the Rink” merchandise at school, a chuck-a-puck contest and Friday night’s game at the Brewster Ice Arena against John Jay High School of Cross River.

The Byram Hills Bobcats skated in pink jerseys and socks in honor of those affected by breast cancer. The team exceeded its fundraising goal of $12,000, and donated $13,817 to the American Cancer Society to fight breast cancer.

“The team always works to top their previous effort,” said Rob Castagna, the Byram Hills director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics. “They did so once again by raising over $13,000 to donate to the American Cancer Society.”
