Local Schools Volley for a Cure

The community is invited to join the fight against cancer by supporting the Salem Junior High and West Branch Middle School volleyball teams’ “Volley for a Cure” fundraisers.  Proceeds will go to the Salem Regional Medical Center (SRMC) Foundation to support SRMC’s advanced imaging services for cancer detection.


The teams are raising funds by selling specially designed “Volley for a Cure” T-shirts for $10 (S-XL), $12 (XXL) and $13 (XXXL), which are available for purchase through Sept. 20. Handel’s pint cards redeemable for one pint of ice cream at Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream & Yogurt may also be purchased for $4.50 each.


“We’re thrilled that the Salem and West Branch volleyball teams have chosen to join together and donate proceeds from this year’s ‘Volley for a Cure’ fundraisers to the Foundation,” said Amy Reed, SRMC Director of Development. “All of the proceeds will benefit area cancer patients by supporting SRMC’s state-of-the-art medical imaging technology, which includes our next generation 3D PET/CT scanner and advanced 3D mammography.”


In addition to the T-shirt and pint card fundraisers, residents are invited to support the teams on Oct. 9 when Salem hosts West Branch for the “Volley for a Cure” seventh- and eighth-grade volleyball matches aimed at raising cancer awareness. The matches will begin at 5 p.m. at Southeast Elementary School in Salem.


For information or to purchase T-shirts or pint cards, contact team coaches Sis Woods, West Branch, 330-257-4283; McKenzie Patterson, Salem, 330-942-1358; or Liz Christani, Salem, 330-446-0050.
