Guthrie Accepts Donation From Sayre Athletes

March 20, 2019

Coach Eileen Sparduti presented a check from the team’s annual Rally for the Cure/Pink Out Game which raised more than $3,500 to support Guthrie’s Breast Care Fund. The fund supports local women who are either uninsured or under-insured receive diagnostic tests and necessary subsequent treatment for breast cancer. 

For Coach Sparduti, it’s important that the team understand the importance of their efforts. “The focus of the Breast Care Fund is not cancer- it’s survivorship. Our donation connects us to a community of women who are also fighters – engaged in a battle with much higher stakes than a win or loss in a season record.  It provides a ‘bigger picture’ perspective to what we are about”. In the past, Coach Sparduti and the team have visited the cancer center so they could see firsthand where their dollars went. 

Since its inception in 2012, the Rally for the Cure/Pink Out Game has raised over $25,600 for Guthrie’s Breast Care Fund.
