Friday Night Hoops at Chester Academy for Coach Peter Rickard

FUNDRAISER COACH PETER RICKARD

Coach Peter Rickard has been coaching Varsity Girls Basketball for almost 10 years at Chester Academy, and has made a huge impact on every player that he has worked with. When Rickard was diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus, Emee Go, a senior at Chester Academy and a member of the Varsity Girls Basketball Team, decided to organize this fundraiser to support Rickard and his family in his fight against cancer.

The fundraiser was a basketball tournament with faculty, alumni, and current varsity players participating. Not including donations, a little over $1600 was raised at the event.

For people who were not able to make it to the event, there is a page where they can donate money at http://www.gofundme.com/peterr.
