Hits for Hope
Local volleyball teams show their support
TS Hill Middle School in Dexter hosted the first volleyball fundraiser in 2011. The atmosphere wasÂ electric, special. The players and coaches decorated the gym in PINK signs, wore PINK socks andÂ headbands, a PINK volleyball was used, PINK whistles were used by the referees. The success of theÂ event led organizers to expand on the idea, purchasing special PINK uniforms for the home team toÂ wear. Several area volleyball teams, including Bernie, Bloomfield, and Richland have since hostedÂ their own events, wearing the PINK uniforms and putting unique twists on the fundraising. Each PINKÂ volleyball is signed and given to a local cancer fighter as a token of love, hope, and encouragement.
