Community Event – First Annual Student vs. Staff Basketball Fundraiser to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital and CRLS Athletics

FOCRLS is pleased to serve as the fiscal sponsor for donations to the Friends of Cambridge Athletics (FOCA) athletic scholarships raised by this event. This fundraiser has been launched by a Rindge family who is deeply appreciative of Boston Children’s Hospital which has given their family dedicated, inspiring care since 2001, and the equally inspiring care through high quality education and support since 2010 by Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.

The event, coordinated by school staff, is a Student vs. Staff basketball game on Wednesday, June 12th from 1:10 – 2:35 pm at Cambridge Rindge & Latin School. Proceeds will support both organizations – Children’s Hospital for brain disease research and CRLS for the athletics scholarships program that FOCA administers in collaboration with the Athletics Department.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the First Annual CRLS Student vs. Staff Basketball Fundraiser on June 12. It was a great game! The staff won by 2 points. We raised quite a bit of money for Boston Children’s Hospital and CRLS. Our speaker from Children’s was Dr. Scott Pomeroy, neurologist-in-chief. He talked about brain disease research with an emphasis on encouraging students to follow their interests into research and science. Jimmy Tingle gave the audience many good laughs! Hope to see you there next year.
