The Greensboro College Pride volleyball team has teamed up with The National Breast Cancer Research Foundation to help raise funds for cancer research. On Wednesday, October 16th, The Pride will host William Peace at 7:00 pm in Hanes Gymnasium for DIG PINK.
This year has a closer to home effect for The Pride volleyball family. Morgan Hooks (Ragsdale High School Graduate), one of our players, has had to experience the troubles personally as her mom, Renee, was diagnosed with HER2 and has had a single mastectomy. Renee has not missed hardly any volleyball matches since Morgan came to Greensboro College in 2011. Because of her health, Renee has not been able to come to games this year to see The Pride play due to her health. Even though Morgan is not able to play right now, Renee still has a close connection to the team and misses coming to the games. The Greensboro College volleyball family misses Renee and the family deeply at the games, but tomorrow night will be a first of the season. As the Greensboro College volleyball family is going to make a special dedication to Renee and support her fighting battle.
Also, The Pride will be recognizing those who have or are fighting breast cancer as well as those who have lost their battle.
The Pride Volleyball team will be collecting monetary donations at the door, as well as selling raffle tickets at the door to support this cause.
