INDIAN HILLS HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM
RUNS 4TH ANNUAL “BE BRAVE” FUNDRAISER FOR BREAST CANCER

Ridgewood, New Jersey November 22, 2016 For the fourth consecutive year, in honor of October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Indian Hills High School Girls Basketball team in Oakland, New Jersey organized a t-shirt fund raiser and donated the proceeds towards The Valley Hospital’s Breast Center Fund.

Julie Haledjian, the Varsity head coach of Indian Hills team “The Braves”, worked with assistant coaches Lindsay Rock and Diane Pevny, along with the team to sell the “Be Brave” t-shirts to athletes, faculty, students and family members.  They sold almost 300 t-shirts and delivered a donation of $400 to the Valley Hospital Foundation.

The American Cancer Society's estimates that in 2016, about 249,260 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in U.S. women, and approximately 7,420 of those new cases will be in New Jersey.  The Valley Hospital Breast Center, which has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, is the hospital of choice for many of these newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.  Valley’s multidisciplinary team of experienced physicians, radiologists, cytopathologists, nurses, researchers and coordinators collaborate regarding all aspects of a woman’s breast care in a patient-focused comprehensive breast care program.   

The Valley Hospital Foundation is grateful for this generous donation from Indian Hills High School Girls Basketball team that has been directed towards the Breast Cancer Fund.
