Comments:  | Leave A Comment

One of the longest running rivalries will continue as the Chartiers Valley High School faculty and alumni will take to the hardwoods to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 16th annual “Hoops For A Cure” doubleheader on April 15 at Chartiers Valley High School.

With more than $1 million raised for pancreatic cancer research, the popular “HOOPS FOR A CURE” charity event will benefit the Nathan S. Arenson Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research, which is overseen by Dr. Olivera Finn, professor and chair at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

The “HOOPS FOR A CURE” charity doubleheader will find the Steelers and the Chartiers Valley Faculty and Alumni tangling in the 8 p.m. finale. Prior to the main event, the evening will begin with the AAAA Section 4 All-Stars taking on the WPIAL All-Stars beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The event has raised more than $1 million in the past 15 years for the Nathan S. Arenson Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute.

Pancreatic cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Not only is this disease common, but it also is extremely difficult to diagnose and treat.

(For more information or to purchase an admission or raffle ticket in advance of the event, contact Adrienne Arenson at (412) 279-1935. If you cannot attend the event but wish to make a charitable donation, please send a check payable to “UPCI/Arenson Fund” c/o Jeff Hilty, 633 Gregg St., Bridgeville, PA 15017.)
