Play 4 the Cure

Bethesda Chevy Chase High School field hockey team's annual game dedicated to raising awareness about breast cancer




On Thursday, October 25, the Bethesda Chevy Chase High School field hockey team played its annual “Play 4 the Cure” game against Northwest High School, emerging with a 8-1 win.

This was a special night, originally dedicated to raising general awareness about breast cancer and funds for research.

A tragic circumstance, though, changed the focus of this year’s game. A few days before the game, Jane Harkaway, the mother of one current and one former player, died from cancer. She left behind two daughters, Hannah, a 15-year-old sophomore at B-CC, and Danielle, 19, a sophomore at Northeastern University, who was an outstanding field hockey player for the Barons during her four years at B-CC. 

The event was officially renamed The Jane Harkaway Play 4 the Cure, in honor and memory of Jane.
