Posted: Monday, November 3, 2008
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - The UW-Eau Claire volleyball team recently held a "Dig for the Cure" event in cooperation with the WIAC and the Susan G. Komen Foundation to support breast cancer awareness and with great community support the event was a success.
"We were very pleased with the great turnout we had and we would like to thank everyone who helped make it a success," head coach Kim Wudi said. "It was great that we were able to promote breast cancer awareness in addition to raising money for breast cancer research."
The Blugolds were able to raise $6,329.10 at their match on October 15 against UW-Stout, smashing their goal of $5,000. Money came from a number of sources including: pledges and flat donations collected by players, merchandise sales, serving contest following the Blugolds' match against Stout and free-will donations. High school teams also supported the cause by collecting donations. Elk Mound High School raised $587.30, Pepin High School $407.20, Cameron High School $200 and Cadott High School $75.
