Joe McDonough Kicks Off Archmere B+ Fundraiser

Archmere is once again partnering with the B+ Foundation to help fund research and support families of kids with cancer nationwide. On Wednesday, February 12th, Joe McDonough visited the school and spoke to our students not only about his work, but about how they can help spread the word leading up to Archmere's annual fundraiser, the B+ Volleyball Tournament.
On March 7h, our students will be participating in Archmere Academy’s Volley(B+)all Tournament to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. The money raised will benefit The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation (, based here in Delaware. The B+ Foundation honors the life of 14-year-old Andrew who battled leukemia and sepsis before passing away in July of 2007.  

Students are encouraged to sign up with a team, pass around an email template for donations, and come out to support the tournament and cheer on their peers on March 7th.
