The following is adapted from an American Cancer Society press release:
Members of the
Stoughton High School varsity volleyball team recently attended the kickoff breakfast for the 21st
annual American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer in
Boston at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.
SHS varsity players Samantha Malley, Emily Cramer, Ashley Medeiros, and Payton Pizzano, along with JV Coach Corie Brookshire were joined by emcees Candy

Stoughton will hold its annual ‘Dig for
a Cure’ pink game against Sharon on October 11 with funds raised benefiting Making Strides. The game will be held
at Sharon High School this year.
The Stoughton High School volleyball team will also be among the some 40,000 people helping to finish the fight against breast cancer Sunday, October 6 at the DCR Hatch Shell in Boston.
Making Strides in Boston, a five-mile fundraising walk,
will unite the community to honor and celebrate breast
cancer survivors, educate about the importance of prevention and early
raise funds to support groundbreaking
research to find, prevent, treat, and cure breast cancer; ensure access
to mammograms for women who need them; and provide free resources and
support to the one in two newly diagnosed
women who turn to the Society for help and support.
The Stoughton High volleyball team will also be holding its own 5K fundraising walk September 28 at 9 a.m., starting and ending at Stoughton High School.
