Chicks that Kick s1101617026Members of the Grafton High School girls’ soccer team and their backers have again pitched in to help fight breast cancer. The Black Hawks, who hosted their annual Chicks That Kick to Cure game, presented a check in October for $1,640 to Team Phoenix, an organization that provides breast-cancer survivors with physical and psychological assistance. The team sold fan T-shirts, bracelets and baked goods and held a Miracle Minute collection drive and also received contributions from Silk Screen Specialists, Lakeshore Veterinary Specialists, Stefanie Johnson, the Grafton Booster Club and Grafton High School administration. Shown with their gift are (front row, from left) Jaden Autey, Brianna Rap, Natalie Cherella, Hailey Zwicker, Hailey Block, (back row) Karsen Wise, Mackenzie Schultz, Ava Pedersen, Faith Kettenhoven, Gretchen Geiser, Judy Tjoe, Tina Arnold, coach Don Arnold and Corbin Woessner.

The Oshkosh team hosted a “Play for a Cause” fundraising game and contributed $3,304 to Team Phoenix.                                                                       Photo by Sam Arendt
