The Johnstown girls lacrosse team will host its Coaches vs. Cancer game against Clinton today at 5 p.m. The girls team will sell awareness cards at school for $1, and the day of the game, they will make a HOPE wall in school. They also will take donations at the door and have a concession stand, with all the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. The team hopes to raise at least $250. The team is looking for everyone to wear gray attire for the occasion.

“It may not seem like much money, but every penny helps and we want to see more and more people celebrate birthdays and holidays with their loved ones,” Johnstown coach Denise Benton said in a news release. “We hope that everyone wears gray on the day of that game, to celebrate the Go Gray For May message. We’d like to take a picture of the crowd and send it in to the ACS with our donation. We look forward to a great day.”
