Kids in grades 3-5 joined Robert Capra and a few other Roxbury staff members for a sports and games fundraiser on Thursday evening, November 9th at Eisenhower Middle School to support Matt Adonis as part of “Face-Off with Team Matt”.
Games included some of Matt’s favorites from Camp Capra like Capture the Flag, Guard the Pin, The Blob and so many more.
Thanks to their efforts, this fundraiser raised $1500 to help the Adonis family during this difficult time.
Matt Adonis is a fourth grade student at Nixon Elementary School who was diagnosed on September 6th with pediatric medulloblastoma brain cancer. Since Matt’s diagnosis, he has endured two major surgeries, and he began an eight-month radiation and chemotherapy treatment plan on Monday, October 9th.
Another fundraiser in the works by the Team Matt Fundraising Committee supported by Roxbury High School Ice Hockey Team. Team Matt t-shirts are on sale now through December 25th with all profits being donated to the family to help offset medical and travel expenses. Shirts can be purchased at http://middlebury.tuosystems.com/stores/teammatt.
