Woodmore and Owens Community College volleyball teams have also joined in.
Woodmore volleyball hosted its first-ever Volley For The Cure and raised around $1,500 for the charity. Kip and Kelly Anderson, who have two daughters on Woodmore’s varsity team, led the fundraising efforts. Woodmore had a bake sale to benefit the Komen Foundation. The choir chose a group of young ladies to sing the National Anthem, and those attending say there was pink everywhere on the court.
The Owens volleyball supported the Komen for the Cure foundation and the organization’s efforts in the fight against breast cancer by making donation during the Express’ home match against Sinclair Community College on Saturday, Oct. 11.
Like at Woodmore, the Owens volleyball team will be wearing pink shirts during match, as well as hosting a bake sale and game ball raffle
Susan G. Komen for the Cure was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. It is hailed as the largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find a cure.
