The Philadelphia Fight Rugby League Club is hosting a special charity match, Clash with Cancer, vs. the New York Knights on Saturday, July 9th at 5:00 p.m. at A. A. Garthwaite Field. All the revenue from ticket sales will go to The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation
The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation honors the life of Andrew McDonough. Andrew battled leukemia, septic shock and complications of childhood cancer for 167 days before passing away on July 14, 2007, at the age of 14. Andrew’s B+ blood type became his family’s and friends’ motto throughout his fight against childhood cancer — to “Be Positive”.
The B+ Foundation is about Kids Helping Kids Fight Cancer — raising money through dance marathons, 5Ks, T-shirt sales and more, to provide financial and emotional support to families of children with cancer nationwide. The B+ Foundation also funds critical, cutting-edge childhood cancer research.
During the match there will be food, beer, and other beverages. There will also be games, prizes, raffles, and a game worn charity jersey auction throughout the event.
