The Henderson Panthers Football team is in its inaugural season and has quickly become a big family. The team goal and mission is to develop character, sportsmanship, and focus on our young players becoming not just better football players but better citizens and students in the real world. This involves them having knowledge of tragedies such as the Boston Marathon bombing.

A member of their Board of Directors saw the Boston B and thought it would pay a great tribute to those affected by the events in Boston when placed inside their traditional paw print. They decided to wear these stickers on their helmets to show their recognition and support to those affected by the events that took place in Boston. They took a simple coffee can and added a label to collect money in the stands. Their cheer team and other volunteers walked through the stadium at each game to collect the donations. The players and parents have been 100% supportive and impressed with how quickly the organization responded and put this together. 

So far they have collected $61.60 and we will be collecting money until after their May 4th games. When the collection ends the funds will be sent to Boston Marathon Relief Fund by the American Fund. 

This is one of the many ways they have been spreading their Panther Pride through Henderson and Las Vegas. Check back in the future as they are already planning a similar program to honor both the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Association in the month of October in addition to the Wounded Warriors in the future.

The Panthers thank you for your interest in Panther Football and feel free to contact them any time.
