The Munster and Chesterton High School Boys Tennis Teams Sept. 27 served up a great tennis game and fundraiser to “Smash Cancer.” Munster senior Adam Richter organized
the 2016 Smash Cancer event with the assistance of Munster Coach Steve Lopez and Chesterton Coach Thomas Bour.
Three years ago, Richter organized the first Smash Cancer fundraiser to raise funding and awareness for a cure. He also designed Smash Cancer t-shirts that both teams wore
featuring the names of 44 cancer “warriors” on the back of the shirt.
“I hope it continues to be an annual event long after I graduate,” Richter said. Through their efforts, the teams raised $3,454. The contribution was donated to both the
Cancer Resource Centre in Munster and the Cancer Research Institute in New York (to be distributed in the Midwest area).
