The RMH Women’s Center
Mammography Van and the Turner Ashby High School soccer program have teamed up to host a fundraising event at 9 a.m. May 11 at Turner Ashby High School.
Money raised at the event will help provide free or reduced-price mammograms for financially challenged, at-risk women.
During the past five years, the Turner Ashby High School and Broadway High School soccer programs have partnered to raise funds in excess of $12,000 for screening mammography needs and to increase awareness of various breast cancer initiatives in the community.
“The kids enjoy this fundraiser and look forward to the event each year,” said Cam Carte, engineering instructor at Massanutten Technical Center and varsity football assistant coach at Turner Ashby High School. Carte is the organizer of the May 11 event.
Gates open at 9 a.m. for a soccer match between Turner Ashby High School and Broadway High School. There will be a cash-prize cornhole tournament, a dunk tank and concessions. Student-athletes will sell jerseys, shirts and bracelets and also take donations.
Shirts with a special Turner Ashby pink ribbon logo will be on sale for $10. The RMH Mammography Van staff will be onsite from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. to offer tours of the van, schedule future appointments and provide general information.
Entrance fees are $5 to enter at the gate and $20 to enter a team of two in the cash-prize cornhole tournament.
