Friday Night Hoops at Chester Academy for 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.
