OK, granted, the grammar is lacking, but the point is
our NCS community scored big--for those who are battling breast cancer--
at last Tuesday night’s basketball game.
Ashley Page, event founder and coordinator, talks about the evening, “This is our fifth year to sponsor Hoops 4 Hope—a time when the NCS community comes together to support the fight against breast cancer. This year we had our best participation yet from families, fans, students, and faculty. The audience was in the pink—pink shirts, pink socks, pink headbands—you name it. Even the cheerleaders wore pink. The evening was made even more special with Clarksville Academy’s participation—the first time for an opposing team to join in the effort. We were able to raise over $3400. Ten percent of this went go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the rest will help pay the medical expenses for two Nashville Christian moms who are battling breast cancer.”
Connie Jo Shelton, NCS President, added, “Last Tuesday’s event was a testimony to relationship! I was overwhelmed with love when I witnessed how our school embraced two new families that are navigating such a difficult journey. Breast Cancer is near and dear to my heart because I lost my sister 20 years ago to this disease. Thanks to generous hearts and events like Hoops 4 Hope, we are in a better place with technology and research to battle this horrible disease. God bless our Nashville Christian family for making a difference.”
