Shrewsbury – Shrewsbury High School Girls’ Basketball varsity, junior varsity and freshman players, coaches and members of the school athletics program announced that the Dec. 30 annual PINK game “Colonials for a Cure” raised $1,000 through a 50/50 raffle, bake sale and basket raffle. Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston matched this amount for a total gift of $2,000.

The generous gift funds the activities of the Comprehensive Breast Health Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where their team of specialists, including surgeons, nurses and other clinicians, provide thorough and wide-ranging approaches to breast care for women. Contributions help support innovative research and patient programs that aim to improve the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
