cancer survivor and Millikin's all-time winningest volleyball coach.

Benedictine-Springfield, Clarke College, Concordia-Wisconsin,
Earlham College, Lincoln Christian University, Millikin University,
Robert Morris University and Webster University.

"Dig for the Cure" was started in 2003 by University of North
Carolina-Charlotte volleyball coach Lisa Marston. Marston, whose
mother was a breast cancer survivor, used her idea as a way to
raise money for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.
The Komen Foundation is a national organization that raises money
for breast cancer research. "Dig for the Cure" has become a
nationwide event and a way for volleyball teams to come together and
join in fellowship.
