Maiden, Bandys vs. cancer

October 12, 2010

On the football field Friday, Maiden High School and Bandys High School will battle it out for a victory.
But as the clock winds down the game's final moments, both teams will emerge victorious against a common opponent: cancer.
The rival schools joined forces to help Bandys assistant football coach Chris "Chopper" Fulbright, 38, who is recovering from kidney cancer.
Maiden High assistant football coach Butch Parker, a good friend of Fulbright's, came up with the idea for a fundraiser in Fulbright's honor. With the support of people from both sides of the football field, the plan became a community event to raise money -- and awareness -- for cancer.
Both schools will hold a barbecue dinner at the Maiden High stadium Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The food, supplied by Boxcar Grille, will include barbecue, baked beans, coleslaw, a role and dessert for $7. Deliveries for 10 or more orders can be arranged.
