17 Strong
Anthony Myers was a normal 17 year old high school football player at Berks Catholic until October 21st 2018. One morning, following his football game, Anthony woke up and had a seizure. He was rushed to the hospital where they found out he had an aggressive brain tumor and was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. Team 17 Strong was created for other schools to help support Anthony and to show him no one fights alone. We have 1 week (Sales end on Friday 12/14) to sell at least  100 T-Shirts . We have no doubt that our PJPII community, will be able to get this done. In addition to placing your order in school during your lunch period with Mr. Graver in Guidance, you can place your order on line on the 17 Strong website. Below is the link to buy the Team 17 Strong PJPII Shirt. Thank you for all your support!
