Shana's Cup

Charity soccer event at Cougar field, Saturday, Nov. 24.

On Saturday, November 24th, the Chatham High School soccer teams will be hosting the second annual Shana's Cup. The charity event will be held from12-4 at Cougar Field.  This event will include a round robin tournement of four teams, with players from both varsity and JV teams, showcasing the talent of our high school players.  Younger children from the Chatham United program will participate as well. This event began last year to benefit a teammate with lymphoma.

This year it will benefit  Simon Rosenau. His mother, Ms. Rosenau, is a science teacher at Chatham High School.  Simon is nine years old and has been diagnosed with adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). This disease causes irreparable breakdown of the protective coating around the nerve cells in the brain. There is no known cure for ALD, and Simon and his family are pursuing a risky bone marrow transplant process in Minneapololis to try and slow, or even stop, the progression of the disease. The school has started a charity called "Sunshine for Simon", and that is where all of the proceeds from Shana's Cup will go this year.
