Seventh- and eighth-graders at Woodland Middle School put their love for sports into practice as they raised money for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The school’s athletic department hosted two fundraisers to benefit the causes — a powder puff football game and a volleyball tournament.

Assistant Principals Patricia Graham and Christine Egan led two teams of students for the football game. Students, teachers and administrators paid $2 to watch the game on the school’s football field, raising a total of $780 for Memorial Sloan Kettering.

On Jan. 3, the girls volleyball team held a round-robin tournament, where teams played each other for five minutes in elimination rounds until two final teams were set to play. The tournament raised $200 for St. Jude.
