DeWITT, NY (WSYR-TV) – The 12the The annual Sally A. Lock charity soccer game in Jamesville-DeWitt raised $ 10,411 for the American Cancer Society and Coaches vs. Cancer earlier this month.

“Every year I ask players and their parents if they know of anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer, and every time everyone puts their hand up,” said football coach JD Boys JV, Paul Krause. “I lost three members of my family to cancer, another sister survived cancer and I lost many colleagues and former players to this disease. What we’ve done here at JD is only a small part of the fight against cancer, and I hope the funds raised through this event will bring us closer to finding a cure.

The event has been taking place at JD since 2010, when Sally Lock, the sister of the college boys’ junior head coach, was battling ovarian cancer for the second time. She eventually died of the disease in December 2010.

This year’s event took place on October 2, 2021, with JD Boys College and Junior College hosting the Rome Free Academy.

“Why have I organized this event every year for 12 years? Because cancer is a horrible disease that affects everyone, ”Krause said. “The amount raised over the years is incredible. Over the past 12 years, the JD community has mobilized to help our soccer players raise funds by selling our t-shirts and getting all the sponsorships. I can’t thank everyone enough for what this means to me and my family every year.

Since 2010, the Sally A. Lock charity soccer game has raised approximately $ 68,000.
