Gilbert Christian hosting Crush Cancer event for 3 families

Gilbert Christian is hosting its second annual Crush Cancer game Thursday for the mothers of Gilbert Christian players who are battling cancer.

Arizona Lutheran also is participating in the event. The proceeds from Thursday’s Gilbert Christian-Arizona Lutheran junior varsity and varsity girls basketball games will be given to three families to help offset the cost of their cancer treatment expenses.

Gilbert Christian is inviting the general public to attend the games, which start at 5:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Gilbert Christian (3632 E. Jasper Dr., Gilbert 85296).

A brief ceremony will be held between the j.v. and varsity games for the three families to recognize their courageous battles.
