AHS Boys' Basketball Players Volunteer

The AHS boys' basketball team recently volunteered at "Can Do Cancer's" Trivia Night fundraising event which raised nearly $48,000.
"It was great to see our players, coaches, and coaches wives interact with the community and represent Ankeny Schools well," said Brandt Carlson, AHS Head Basketball Coach.
“Can Do Cancer" is a non-profit organization that works to improve the lives of breast cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy treatment in Des Moines.  They provide dinner for patients and their families on chemotherapy days, house cleaning services throughout treatment, a website for patients to learn what they need to know after a breast cancer diagnosis, and motivational support by breast cancer survivors.
