Alexia Akbay, a senior at Indiana Area High School, leaned over as Charlie Batch, a Steelers quarterback, signed her hair tie Tuesday at a fundraiser basketball game where teachers competed against Steelers players.

Next to Batch is safety Ryan Mundy.

The fundraiser was held for a ninth-grader who has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Half of the proceeds from this event, sponsored by First Commonwealth Bank, will go to the student’s family, and half to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
