Fairfield athletic youths take Ice Cream Challenge to raise money for cancer research


Some student athletes help to raise money for a good cause by trading the net for a bowl of ice cream on Wednesday. 

Fairfield Youth Lacrosse’s fourth grade girls team took part in the #Reason4Freezin challenge to raise money for the Cancer Couch Foundation

The non-profit funds research towards a cure for metastatic breast cancer research. This new challenge involves eating scoops of ice cream hands free.

It was started by Cancer Couch Foundation founder Dr. Rebecca Timlin-Scalera of Fairfield after she was diagnosed.

“And, it doesn’t have to be ice cream it could be a frozen smoothie, it could be ice chips. So there’s no health concerns. Anybody can do this. You can do this from your hospital bed. There’s no barrier to entry,” Dr. Rebecca Timlin-Scalera ​​​​​​. 

If you want to help you can share your video using the hashtag #Reason4Freezin then nominate your friends.

100 percent of the proceeds raised by Cancer Couch Foundation go toward finding a cure.
