Trojans 4 a Cure are Superheroes for Autism Awareness

On Saturday, April 16, 2016, 21 members of Trojans 4 a Cure participated as part of the team, Superheroes for Autism, in the Lehigh Valley Walk for Autism Speaks at the Bethlehem SteelStacks.  Even Trojan Man was there representing PHS and taking part in the walk.  The students represented Pottstown well and members of another group commented on how respectful and mature our students were throughout the walk.

 

Throughout the 3rd Quarter, Trojans 4 a Cure sold Autism Awareness ribbons and puzzle pieces during lunches, sold their team t-shirts, and held a "Light It Up Blue" Spaghetti Dinner on April 1st, as part of their efforts to raise money for Autism Speaks and raise awareness of Autism.  In total, Trojans 4 a Cure raised and donated $617.25 to Autism Speaks.
