SPASH JV and Varsity volleyball teams have presented an $11,000 check to Saint Michael's hospital to support local breast cancer patients.

The volleyball team hosted an event at their October 3 game that promoted breast health education and breast cancer awareness. Proceeds, collected from 50% of admission sales, pink t-shirts sales and a silent auction, went to the Breast Care Center Fund at Saint Michael’s Foundation.

“Three years ago we decided to put our talents and love of volleyball to a good cause,” shared Julie Johnson SPASH volleyball head coach. “We are so pleased with our continued success and are so proud to keep the donations local once again this year.”

The SPASH volleyball team rallied other teams to join the cause including, Ben Franklin and P.J. Jacobs Junior High Schools.

“The amount of energy and enthusiasm these young ladies have around raising funds for breast cancer patients is tremendous,” shared Angie Heuck, Saint Michael’s Foundation Director. “Through a collaborative spirit they have embraced the cause with their whole hearts and will impact many lives as a result.”

The Breast Care Center fund was created in 2012 to help support patients, programs and initiatives of the Breast Care Center at Ministry Saint Michael’s Hospital.
