Big Bend women’s volleyball team hosts fundraiser for local cancer foundation
MOSES LAKE — The Big Bend Community College women’s volleyball team is hosting a fundraiser in support of the Columbia Basin Cancer Foundation, and breast cancer awareness, during their upcoming match on Wednesday, Oct. 11.
The Lady Vikes take on Yakima Valley at 6 p.m. in the DeVries Activity Center. Supporters will receive a bracelet with a $5 donation, and a free t-shirt with a $20 donation.
Every dollar raised during the team’s ‘Dig for the Cure’ fundraiser will go directly to the Columbia Basin Cancer Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that serves Grant and Adams counties by providing support, services, encouragement, and information to patients and families currently battling cancer.
Their support helps patients and their families throughout the process of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
Head Coach Alexa Moser said her team wanted to raise awareness for breast cancer specifically as October is breast cancer awareness month. But they also wanted to find a way to support the community of Moses Lake and the surrounding areas as well.
“One of our team values this season has been to live for a purpose greater than yourself, and by supporting our local cancer foundation, our girls are doing just that,” said Moser. “The foundation helps provide necessary aid and support to families in the area battling cancer, and Big Bend Volleyball wanted to help contribute to their mission.”
