Wisconsin-Based Volleyball Team Raises $11K for Breast Cancer PatientsThe Breast Cancer Site
A group of students from Stevens Point Area High (SPASH) school raised $11,000 to support breast cancer patients, according to Wausau CBS affiliate WSAW.
Members of the junior and senior varsity volleyball teams used partial proceeds from an Oct. 3 game, in addition to t-shirt and silent auction sales to donate to the Breast Care Center Fund at St. Michael’s Hospital’s foundation.
“Three years ago we decided to put our talents and love of volleyball to a good cause,” Julie Johnson, head volleyball coach at SPASH, told the source. “We are so pleased with our continued success and are so proud to keep the donations local once again this year.”
If these kids have inspired you to do your part toward the battle against breast cancer, find out where you can contribute. For instance, the American Cancer Society has a volunteer center where people can learn more about donating their time to a worthy cause. Additionally, you can research local organizations to discover which need the most assistance. Some groups even allow you to recruit your own fundraising team.
