Ethan Barnhart's classmates organized the faculty vs. student soccer game in tribute to his fight against Ewing's Sarcoma. Nine hundred students paid $1 each to watch the game during an advisory period. Barnhart's family selected the American Cancer Society and Four Diamonds Fund as recipients of the money raised.
