1,2,3,4 We declare a Tab War ??
That’s right, Kids Can’t Fight Cancer Alone has declared a Tab War between The Canton Warriors and The Troy Trojans, and both Districts have officially accepted our friendly competition amongst the schools.
What’s a tab war? For the month of October these 2 school districts will be collecting aluminum can pull tabs. The school with most pounds collected will have bragging rights along with a custom made tab trophy ?? being created by Troy’s one and only, Mr. Jeff Palmer.
Why the month of October? You see there is this football ?? game, The Old Shoe, that takes place every year at the end of October between these 2 rival schools; it is our hope this will encourage more school spirit around the game and bring the communities together for this worthwhile cause annually.
Why aluminum pull tabs? The Ronald McDonald House collects these tabs and cashes them in at a local recycling center. The Ronald McDonald House counts on these payments to help with their daily operations.
Why is Kid’s Can’t Fight Cancer Alone facilitating this war? The Ronald McDonald House is a necessary home away from home for our kiddos and so many other families in our area for when their infant, toddler, child or teen is admitted to the Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, we sincerely feel this was a great way to initiate generosity to all the children of our area needing the Ronald McDonald House.
Both school districts will start the War October 1st and will end October 29th. The trophy presentation, to the winning school, will occur at Miller A. Moyer Field during halftime of The Old Shoe Game.
We encourage the communities of Canton and Troy to rally behind your districts and help them by dropping off aluminum tabs during this time.
Thank you to everyone for your support!!!!!!
