OFA Coaches Vs Cancer Games Raise $2,336

On Feb. 24 Senior Community Development Manager of the Northeast Region of the American Cancer Society Don Boshart made his annual visit to Ogdensburg Free Academy to accept a donation from funds raised from the Blue Devils' Coaches vs Cancer Games. Members of the OFA Boys and Girls Basketball teams, Hockey team and Cheerleading squads presented a check in the amount of $2336.

The check represented the total amount of funds collected during OFA's 2019-20 Coaches Vs Cancer Donation Nights. Contributions were collected from OFA Faculty and Staff Dress Down Days and via gate receipts as well as other fund-raising activities.

"I look forward to a growing relationship and continued partnership for seasons to come" said OFA Athletic Director Tony Bjork concerning the partnership with the American Cancer Society which provided television commercials to promote the games.
