The Caritas Project

The Caritas Project is a chance for students at St. Augustine Prep to make a difference in the world. It is service project for rising seniors to complete in the summer before senior year. Our project is a small-sided, 3v3 soccer tournament to raise money for Eric Riley and his family.

Eric “Manz” Riley

Eric Riley is a 6th grader in the Clearview Regional School District. In June 2010, he was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor. It was located in a sensitive part of his brain, making it difficult to remove. That August, doctors removed 90 percent of the tumor. Eric then started on chemo- therapy treatments. After the treatments were unsuccessful, the doctors decided to surgically remove the rest of the tumor. The tumor was removed, but with the possibility of the cancer returning, he must get frequent MRI’s to test for cancer.
