Disastrous ending to the first half dooms Canton against Ringwood
Last Thursday, the Canton Tigers welcomed the Ringwood Red Devils to town, as the two teams competed in their 2019 Win-Win matchup in which the Tigers lost a hard-fought contest by a score of 25-10. The WinWin games are a fundraising effort in which high school teams raise awareness for cancer by not only sporting pink in their uniforms, but also collecting donations for patient services at the Stephenson Cancer Center in Oklahoma City.
The Stephenson Cancer Center provides team care in an effort to redefine patient-centered care with their studies on new treatments, clinical trials and breakthroughs in the medical field as it pertains to cancer. The money goes to providing patients with services such as diagnosis, treatment, pain and symptom management, rehabilitation, support groups and many other areas in which the center can help aid cancer patients in their battle with this horrific disease.
The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association has teamed up with the Stephenson Cancer Center to help organize events like this, and each fall, the OSSAA awards a state championship trophy to the school in each class that has the top WinWin fundraiser.
