Why Volley for the Cure™?
Volley for the Cure™ was started by two friends in 2006 to bring awareness to breast cancer. A Volley for the Cure™ match is a regular season high school volleyball match that is designated as an awareness and fundraising match. The goal is to pack the stands with Pink! Players, coaches, parents and schools are encouraged to get involved!
Fundraising generated through a Volley for the Cure™ event will be donated to the local Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Affiliate, working to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures.
Early detection saves lives in the fight against breast cancer. By encouraging early education and awareness for the young women participating in Volley for the Cure™ events, we are working as a community towards the future, and towards a world without breast cancer.
An Amazing Phenomenon!
The Volley for the Cure™ program continues to grow. Matches are held in all corners of Ohio, and the idea is being replicated across the nation. To date, over 40,000 volleyball players have participated in Volley for the Cure™. During the 2013 season we surpassed $2 million dollars raised to support local Susan G. Komen for the Cure® affiliates in the fight against breast cancer. As participation in the Volley for the Cure™ events increases, so does awareness of this terrible disease and the importance of education for all women and girls.
