According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer. There are 11 girls on the Kaneland High School varsity volleyball team; do the math.
The school supports the cause by donating their earnings from â€œVolley for the Cure,â€ a program put on by the volleyball team that supports efforts trying to prevent these numbers from going up. October is an appropriate month to be raising money for this organization in particularly because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
â€œ(Kaneland volleyballâ€™s trying to get the word spread by) flyers hanging up around the school, newspapers, online, Key Communication Network, and all of our girls are spreading the word to their friends,â€ said coach Todd Weimer.
Some other things that will be going on during the month of October, also run by the volleyball team, will be the breast cancer silent auction.
Kaneland demonstrated school spirit and its support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month by not wearing black and white, but wearing pink, on a game on Oct. 15.
