Wanted to fill you all in on a nice fundraiser Nyack is running at their game Thursday.
The Indians’ game against Clarkstown North tomorrow is being played in conjunction with the “Light it Up Blue Campaign” organized by Autism Speaks. The campaign was created in an effort to raise awareness for Autism. On Tuesday the Empire State Building participated by lighting up blue to celebrate the sixth annual United Nations World Austim Day. For more information click here for full details about the campaign.
I spoke with assistant coach Kim DeLorenzo, who said the issue is close to head coach Kathryn Perrella and her. DeLorenzo and Perrella are both special education teachers that work with children with Autism on a daily basis.
As part of the fundraiser, the girls have encouraged the entire staff at Nyack to wear blue during the school day. The team will wear blue bandanas during the game and the field will be decorated with blue balloons and streamers. The JV team will also be in the stands collecting donations.
If you like to donate but can’t make the game the girls have set up a website through the foundation. Click here if you’d like to contribute some money to a great cause.
If you’re in the area definitely head over to support a great cause while watching some girls lacrosse.
And don’t forget to wear blue!
