Students from Churchville-Chili High School made some important donations today.
    
Back in January, the varsity boys and girls basketball teams held a pink weekend and raised more than $15 hundred.
    
They came together today at Strong Memorial Hospital, and made the donation in the name of Kim Miller, the wife of the boys head coach, who's being treated for breast cancer.
    
The students raised the money through ticket and t-shirt sales, and a fifty fifty raffle.

Tim Miller, the Churchville-Chili Boys Basketball Coach said, “ In sports, there are bigger things than wins and losses. Sometimes, there are life lessons that can be taught and having to take some time away from them to be with my wife during treatment, they felt that as well and they wanted to do something to show their support for me and it was huge."

Maggie Tabone, a player on the girls basketball team added, "it's a great life lesson, that everyone can help and every little bit helps and everybody can do something."

The money raised was donated to Camp Good Days, The Wilmont Cancer Society and the Golisano Children's Hospital.
