Calistoga is one of more than 50 California high school football teams that are participating in Touchdowns Against Cancer, a national high school football program to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month was launched by MaxPreps.com, an online high school sports site and a CBS Sports Digital property, and Pledge It, a performance-based crowdfunding platform, according to a press release.

Every touchdown scored by a participating high school between Sept. 14 -30 will directly benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the press release said.

The initiative is aimed to unify teams across the country for a common cause: defeating childhood cancer, the press release said.

Fans can also get involved by pledging a donation for every touchdown scored.
