Club C.A.R.E. is preparing to host their 12th annual BSHS Dodgeball tournament on Mar. 10. Each year Club C.A.R.E. selects a cause to donate the funds collected from the tournament, and this year the money will be going to Big Spring Middle School choir teacher, Lori Shover.

Shover was recently diagnosed with cancer. The majority of the proceeds will go to her travel expenses to get to Philadelphia. “(This means) Turnpike tolls, hotel stays if necessary, food, parking garage feeds, and sometimes boarding our dog on the lengthy stays.  Several thousand dollars have already gone into these trips and more are to come.” said Shover.

While Shover is still undergoing treatments, she is feeling very upbeat and encouraged throughout her journey. She stays positive by reminding herself that someone is having a worse day than her. She is also encouraged by everyone at the Big Spring School District.

“I’m simply speechless and humbled that Big Spring is pulling together so much for me!  I am touched beyond belief.  I feel so undeserving of these donations but I know they will greatly help us out.” said Shover. “Big Spring is full of amazing, supportive, loving people – this experience has reminded me how proud I am to be a Bulldog!”

The event will be hosted at BSHS gymnasium from 3 to 6 P.M. There will also be a raffle and entertainment. Club CARE had been working since early January planning the event. “We have been preparing by making sure that we have the concessions, equipment, raffle, and all entertainment ready for Mar. 10.” said junior, Bentli Burke.

The cost to participate is $5 a player and $30 for a whole team. The forms to sign up can be found in room 337. For those who would rather spectate, it costs $2 for students and $4 for adults. Last year, there were a little over 100 participants. Club C.A.R.E. is hoping for a better turn out this year.
