Brockman School scores for leukemia patients

Stella Brockman School’s staff vs. students will be playing basketball today from 3:30 to 5 p.m. for a good cause. All proceeds from the game will benefit the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

Spearheaded by fourth-grade teacher Erick Kimball, this first annual Stella Brockman Staff vs. Students basketball game is being held in conjunction with the Pennies for Patients fund-raiser that the school is conducting. Students collect all the coins and cash that they can and bring it to school for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.

“This is a great cause and the students are really excited to be a part of it,” said Kimball who is this year’s seventh- and eighth-grade boys basketball coach.

As the coach this year, “I came to know both of our student teams and thought a friendly game between them and some of our wonderful staff here at Stella Brockman would be a great way to raise some additional money,” Kimball said.

People who come to the game are being charged $2 each at the door, with $1 of each admission going to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. The other $1 is going to the American Red Cross to help those in need from the recent earthquake in Japan.
