Sagamore Middle recently held two events to help support the fight against cancer.

During the school day on March 31, the building held its St. Baldrick’s event. A combination of students and staff members shaved their head in solidarity for children battling cancer. In doing so, the shavees collected funds from family and friends to support life-saving research. Sagamore’s St. Baldrick’s team raised $4,500 for children’s cancer research. The team additionally held a combined event with Long Island Disc Golf, raising a total of $20,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. In the last 15 years, the entire Sachem community has raised more than $500,000 for the organization.

Following Sagamore’s St. Baldrick’s event, the building participated in Sagamore Spikes out Cancer Volleyball Tournament. Twenty-three teams of students and faculty participated in the event to raise money for the DezyStrong Foundation. The tournament, along with the building’s Pi Day fundraiser earlier in the month, raised more than $1,700.
