Volleyball Makes Donation to YRMC Breast Cancer Center
On Saturday September 7th Yavapai Volleyball teamed with Embry Riddle Aeronautical University Volleyball for the Crosstown Battle Against Breast Cancer match. The two coaching staffs met for the first time in July and decided to combine their efforts toward fundraising and bringing more awareness to the local community about breast cancer issues. The decision was quickly made to keep the monetary donation local so that Yavapai County saw the most benefit from the fundraising efforts of the two volleyball teams. The Breast Cancer Center at YRMC in Prescott Valley was selected as the organization to benefit from the fundraising efforts.
The majority of funds raised came from the selling of pink T shirts by the athletes and coaches from the Roughriders and Eagles teams. Today the teams officially met with Nancy Ledoyen, a representative for YRMC, and donated $4080.86 and an autographed pink volleyball to the Breast Care Center.
