On Wednesday morning, Boston College High School hosted a celebration of friendship, support, and love honoring senior soccer star Anatoliy Berezyuk, who has been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer since his diagnosis in December 2020.

The outdoor, distanced event included a performance by the BC High Concert Choir. After the event, members of the choir sold CD copies of past performances, with proceeds going to Berezyuk's family to help pay for expenses related to his treatment.

Berezyuk has starred for BC High's varsity soccer team for the past three seasons, receiving recognition on the All Scholastic Team, All State Team, Eastern Mass All Star, Catholic Conference All Star, and numerous team accomplishments throughout his soccer career. Berezyuk, who immigrated from Ukraine when he was young, also pioneered the Russian Language Club at BC High.
