The team began raising money on behalf of breast cancer research in
2006. Every year since then, they have raised money during one
special match. This year, the volleyball team and coaches have been
collecting money for more than a week. Donations are also being
accepted at the main information desk in the Harts Science Building
The fundraiser will culminate on Wednesday during the 6
p.m. home game against Lincoln Land Community College in the
Davidson-Sheffer Gymnasium. The event is open to the public.
Admission is just $4 for adults, $2 for kids, and all proceeds will
be donated to charity.
During this special matchup, the Lady Lynx will don special pink
jerseys in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

When announcing the collection drive, Lincoln coach Mark Tippett
asked the entire campus and community to rally behind the team's
efforts. "Breast cancer is a devastating illness, but we can all
make a difference," he said. "Let's pack the gym. We want to see a
sea of pink in the stands!"
