Portsmouth High School Senior Lanse Mitchell hosted a dodgeball tournament yesterday to help generate awareness of esophageal cancer, while raising money for The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation.
Lanse decided to host the dodgeball tournament to fulfill his Senior project requirement and wanted to make a difference by helping a local charity. President of The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation was honored to have worked with Lanse on this project and both she and Vice President were invited to speak to the students about The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation’s mission to raise awareness, encourage early detection and to fund research of esophageal cancer.
After months of preparation and planning, Lanse and a large group of students from Portsmouth High School played several rounds of dodgeball on what marked the mid-point of April, which is Esophageal Cancer Awareness Month. Please join us in thanking Lanse for a job well done!
