This year’s Columbus Day weekend football game will have a spin on it. The student council will be hosting St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, in an effort to benefit the hospital.

“St. Jude’s… has been a charity that has been near to my heart,” student council co-president and senior at Pentucket Savana Silva told the Profile. “There is nothing worse for a family then to have their child diagnosed with cancer or another fatal illness. St. Jude’s does everything to make getting treatment easier for them.” Silva also points out that St. Jude’s has many programs to support children with life-threatening diseases, including classrooms with lower ceilings to make the children feel less intimidated. “It’s actually my dream to work there one day,” said Silva. “So by holding this fundraiser, we are hoping to raise money to help St. Jude’s in their mission to end childhood cancer.”

The student council will be collect donations for St. Jude’s before, during, and after the game. Also, t-shirts with the text “Pentucket teams up with St. Jude’s” will be sold.

The football game is Saturday, Oct. 7 at 2pm on Pentucket’s field. The Sachems will be hosting the North Reading Hornets.
