In an era where young people are often considered self-centered, two Barrington High School student-athletes have raised the bar for their peers. Not to mention raising more than $225 for cancer research.
BHS captains Rebecca Maddock and Rebecca Gasperoni wanted to raise awareness for Susan G. Komen For the Cure because Cancer has affected the lives of relatives and close loved ones. To let everyone know the cause for which they played, players on both squads wore neon pink socks in memory of Susan Komen as did the two game officials.
“I have an aunt who has breast cancer,” Gasperoni said. “I wanted to do this for her.”
“We want to raise awareness of breast cancer and awareness of ‘the cure,’” Maddock said. “This is a great way to do it.”
