All of the proceeds will benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation.

Over $800 has already been raised for the 2011 Volley for the Cure.

In this year alone, nearly 10,000 women under the age of 40 will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Volley for the Cure was created as a way to honor and celebrate the heroic fight against breast cancer. This match is dedicated to all the men and women who have been touched by breast cancer, with the hopes that this devastating disease will one day be cured.
