On Friday, Jan. 19, WHS girls basketball will be playing Cambridge Rindge and Latin in the annual “Coaches vs Cancer” game.

On Friday, Jan.19, the Wayland High School girls basketball team will take on Cambridge Rindge and Latin team at 7 p.m. in the WHS field house. The student fans section’s psych is pink, to demonstrate support for cancer. The annual “Coaches vs. Cancer” game was created in honor of Jim Griffin, a girls basketball coach who passed away from cancer.

This year not only marks the 11th annual fundraiser of “Coaches vs. Cancer,” but it also honors former coach and father of current JV coach Justin Azulay, Scott Azulay. Scott Azulay was the JV girls basketball coach and was an assistant to varsity. This fundraiser also honors all Wayland residents who have lost family members to cancer. As part of the event, the Wayland basketball program will raise money to be donated to cancer research by selling both tickets at the game and by selling t-shirts for $20 before the game.

All money made during this fundraiser will be donated to the cause. Already, the girls basketball team has raised over $3,600, and their goal is to exceed this number. If you are looking to donate, donations can be made on this page.

This fundraiser has held a special place throughout the years in the Wayland basketball program and continues to be a memorable night according to the team. The team encourages fans to watch the game and donate to help fight cancer.
