Hugs from Hayley marks 10 years | | Biddeford Courier

SACO – Hayley Desjardins has spent more time in the hospital than most freshmen in high school. The Thornton Academy ninth grader missed much of the previous two years of school due to complications from aplastic anemia, a rare bone marrow disease in which the body can’t produce enough new blood cells. Hayley’s first episode with the disorder came when she was 5 years old.

Her family and the Biddeford-Saco Elks Lodge held the Hugs for Hayley 5K Run and Fun Walk in 2008 to help pay for Hayley’s treatments. The following year as Hayley’s condition improved, the name of the event was changed to Hugs from Hayley and all proceeds from the race went to Maine Children’s Cancer Program. The race has raised and donated $100,000 to Maine Children’s Cancer since 2009.

This year’s 10th annual race will be held at 7 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 24 at the Biddeford- Saco Elks Lodge, 68 Ocean Park Road, Saco. It’s the first year the race will be held on a Sunday, which Hayley’s parents hope will allow more families to attend. In the past, the race occurred at the same time as soccer games and cross-country meets. ... years.html

Thornton Academy upsets Massabesic
The Trojans dominate the previously undefeated Mustangs in a 4-1 victory.

...Botting then made two spectacular kick saves on Rutledge, one of Massabesic’s top scorers, with a little under five minutes left. Those stops came less than a minute after Cat Henaire stretched Thornton’s lead to 3-1.

“We were pumped for this game; we knew Massabesic is a really great team,” said Botting, who missed a couple games earlier this season because of an injury but has been solid since. “We wanted to be better at beating them to the ball. We just wanted it more.

“It’s a little nerve-wracking back there, but I have confidence I can do it. They are great team and had great shots on goal. I just managed to get a pad on them.” ... assabesic/
