Head coach John Liberato and members of the Summit High School football team participated in the eighth annual Lauren’s First and Goal Football Camp that benefits pediatric brain tumor research. The camp was held on Sunday, June 5, at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania.
More than 1,800 student-athletes were coached through offensive and defensive drills by more than 270 volunteer college coaches representing schools from Divisions I, II and III. University of Connecticut head coach Paul Pasqualoni was the featured guest speaker. The camp raised more than $80,000 and set a record for camper donations.
The one-day camp is the primary fundraiser for Lauren’s First and Goal Foundation, which provides financial support for brain tumor research and cancer services, offers financial and emotional support to families living with pediatric cancer, and increases awareness of the disease. The camps raise money through a $30 registration fee for each camper as well as non-camper donations.
Through its participation in the camp, the Summit High School team raised $3200 for the foundation.
