Zach's Story

Zachary McCulloch, despite his third year in his battle with cancer, graduated from Plainfield North this past month! Zach was stricken with a rare form of cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma. This cancer is diagnosed in approximately 350 children each year, the majority under 6 years of age. Teenagers and adults would represent about 40 of this total a year (rarest of the rare). Rhabdomyosarcoma is a highly malignant and relentless cancer.


Zachary is now going into his third year of treatment. You can read Zach’s story along with many others by going to http://www.carepages.com/.


The family recently reached Zach’s lifetime deductible. However, thanks to the efforts of some co-workers, they found another insurance company to help cover Zach’s continuing medical expenses.

Many thanks for sharing this with as many of your friends as possible! Any other fund raising ideas can be sent to Kathy Lopez at kathylopez@comcast.net.

2008 NFL Junior Player Development Camp

PLAINFIELD JUNIOR CATS FOOTBALL PROUDLY PRESENTS THE 2008 NFL JUNIOR PLAYER DEVELOPMENT CAMP FOR ALL PLAYERS 10-14 YEARS OLD

2008 NFL Junior Player Development Camp

JPD integrates on-field skills development with life skills and character development. As youngsters plan for future high school interscholastic activities, participants receive instruction from NFL-selected high school coaches, as well as counseling that focuses around a variety of life skills, such as responsibility, goal-setting, sportsmanship, self-control, smart moves, and teamwork. Each life skill addressed through the context of football allows coaches to make the connection between life skills as they are applied on the field, in school, at home and in the community.
