John Habib's City Sports: Field hockey players stick it to cancer
Spearheading the fight against cancer were twin sisters Jenna and Kelly Frietas, senior field hockey players at the time for Manchester Memorial who are now at UMass-Lowell.
Since 2011, Christine — supported by her friends and family, including husband, Robert, and daughter Cara — has survived surgery to remove a tumor near her heart and underwent two successful brain-tumor operations, the last one just four months ago.
There is a $10 admission fee. A silent auction and raffles will be offered to help raise money.
On jamboree day, Playing for a Purpose t-shirts will be sold and organizers will operate a concession stand.
For information and tickets for Milly's Tavern pre-jamboree gala contact Christine Freitas at 759-7728 or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
The inductees include Daniel Hanagan, Bishop Bradley '66; George W. Smith, Bishop Bradley '54; Mark Foley, Trinity '86; Marc Caron, St. Anthony-Trinity '73; Jeff Chenard, Trinity '81; Shane LaPorte, Trinity '92; Tunji Awojobi, Trinity '93; and Chris Brickley, Trinity '05.
The Manchester Babe Ruth League will also welcome donations from the general public.
