Participants await their turn to take the court during last year’s Students vs. Faculty Volleyball Game in support of “Charley’s Fund” and the fight against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This year’s event will be held at RFH on Thursday, February 27.

Press release from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School

Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School students and faculty members are once again dedicating their time and their volleyball skills to a worthy cause.

The always-entertaining Student vs. Faculty Volleyball Tournament will be held in the RFH gym on Thursday, February 27. Student teams will play in elimination rounds beginning at 6 p.m. and faculty members will then take to the court to square off against “surviving” student teams at 7 p.m.

An admission fee of $5 per person will be collected in support of Charley’s Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).

DMD is a devastating muscle-wasting disease that affects one in every 3,600 newborn boys worldwide and leads to paralysis. The fund is named for Charley Seckler, a 13-year-old cousin of RFH junior Lucas Seckler and his brother Stanley, a 2013 RFH graduate.

Charley’s parents started the fund shortly after their son was diagnosed in 2004 and have made it their mission to support DMD research. This is the fourth year that RFH students and staff have taken to the volleyball court to offer their support.

The RFH Student vs. Faculty Volleyball Tournament is sponsored by the Seckler family of Rumson. It is being organized by the student members of the RFH Character Education Club with support from JoinAGame.com, a social network for planning “pickup” sporting events — ones spontaneously started by a group of players — in the Monmouth County area.
