DEMAREST, NJ Two of Bergen County’s top teams competed for a common cause in a fundraiser girls’ varsity soccer match to battle childhood cancer. (September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month).

Academy of the Holy Angels and Immaculate Heart Academy’s Girls Varsity Soccer Game played Tuesday at the AHA field raised $2,672 to benefit three -year-old Charlie Meyers who is battling cancer. The teams agreed to donate funds collected at the game to help young Charlie, whose Dad, Tom, was employed at Academy of the Holy Angels and Mom, Lauren, worked at Immaculate Heart Academy.
