Squash for a cause

Posted by Reeve Staff in Daily Dose on September 19, 2017 # Fundraising

Chase Brandow and his family are hosting a family friendly squash game/event on October 1 with proceeds going to Hope Help Live in honor of the Brandows friend and fellow squash player , who sustained an injury when he tripped and fell during a match in 2015.

“As I was playing my first match in Long Island City in the Fall of 2015, down 1-2 in games, a gentleman on the sideline asked my mother if he could talk to me prior to going on court for the next game. He gave me great coaching from his wheelchair and I won the fourth and fifth games with ease,” said Chase. “After the match, I started talking with [Arvind] and his family. After thanking him for his words of wisdom and coaching, we learned how he sustained the injury that put him in the wheelchair. After this first meeting and conversation with Arvind, his wife, Fran, and their son, Christopher (also a squash player), I knew that we would be friends for a long time. My mother and I wanted to pay back the kindness shown to me during that crucial first match.”

On October 1 at the Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, some of the best international squash players will be participating in the event, including Omar Mosaad, Mohammed Aboueghar, Zahed Mohammed, and Todd Harrity. There will also be raffle items, giveaways to players who meet fundraising goals, and great match play with some of the best competitors in the world. The event is open to squash players of all ages, from all clubs, schools, and areas to join in and be a part of this fun afternoon and play for a good cause.

Proceeds from “Squash for a Cause” will benefit Arvind Lall’s campaign at Help Hope Live. Donations made to Help Hope Live are tax deductible. Click here to sponsor “Squash for a Cause” or contact Chase at chasebrandow@gmail.com.
