The field hockey team’s annual Play for the Cure game is usually focused on raising money for breast cancer research. However, this year, the team decided to use the event to raise funds for different causes.

One association the team decided on was the American Diabetes Association. This was important to the team because one of its varsity defensive players, sophomore Alyson Sanford, has Type One diabetes. She discovered her condition last field hockey season. The team was passionate about finding a cure for people like Sanford because they have seen how it affects her in her daily life.

The team also raised money for the Epilepsy Foundation. Junior Kaitlyn Morgan has battled this disease throughout every season. Morgan is Connecticut’s children epilepsy representative and spokesperson.

After the Saturday Play for the Cure game in October, the team raised about $1300 for both causes, along with the car wash money they raised during the season. The total amount money raised came to about $2300 with the proceeds split between the two associations.
