Chesapeake College teams join battle against cancer
Volleyball, soccer matches to feature fundraisers for research

WYE MILLS – Chesapeake College’s fall sports teams are both sponsoring events to raise money for cancer research.

The women’s volleyball matches this Friday against Frederick Community College (7 p.m.) and Monday, October 24th against Hagerstown Community College (6 p.m.) will be fundraisers for the Dig Pink Foundation as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The team will conduct a silent auction for "Dig Pink" t-shirts as well as a bake sale at each match.

Half of the proceeds from those events will benefit the Dig Pink Foundation and half will benefit the college’s women’s volleyball team. Game tickets are $3 per person and $5 per family.

Dig Pink is held each year by middle school, high school, and collegiate teams across the nation to increase awareness and raise donations to support research to find a cure for breast cancer. The college men’s soccer team is conducting a 50-50 raffle at its 4 p.m. game on October 19th against Delaware Tech. The Skipjacks will also be accepting contributions for their charity, which is the National Foundation for Cancer Research’s "Kick it to Cancer" campaign.

"Our players are very excited about these events," said Chesapeake College Athletic Director Frank Szymanski. "They want to be part of the effort to find a cure for cancer."
