Shoot for a Cure

EXETER - A local teen has organized a St. Patrick’s Day Family Skate and Shoot event to help raise funds for Exeter Hospital oncology patients in need.

Casey Glynn, a 16 year-old Hampton resident, has organized his Shoot for a Cure event for the past eight years in honor of his godmother, Anne-Marie Viviano, who lost her battle with breast cancer in May of 2009. Glynn is teaming up with the Winnacunnet High School hockey team for the second year for the fundraiser on Sat., March 16, from 6:00 to 8:00 at The Rinks at Exeter.

All proceeds will benefit Exeter Hospital’s The Beyond the Rainbow Fund, a fund founded by Viviano to help provide financial assistance and additional support to local cancer patients in need.

The night will begin with the opportunity to sponsor and personalize a “Puck for a Buck” as Casey and his teammates shoot pucks into the net. People can sponsor pucks in honor of those who are living with cancer or have been lost to cancer. The Puck for a Buck portion of the event will be followed by two hours of skating, raffles, face painting and food. The cost of admission is $8.00, which covers skating (rentals not included).

To date with the help of the community, friends and family, Casey has donated more than $14,000 to The Beyond the Rainbow and the American Cancer Society.

Those who are unable to make the event can make a donation directly to the event. Checks should be made payable to: Exeter Hospital-Beyond the Rainbow C/O Casey Glynn, PO Box 656, Hampton, NH 03843. For more information about the event please contact Vivian Brown at 580-6775.
