Rock's Dig for the Cure event raises $900 for breast cancer awareness
Dig for the Cure events sponsored by the SRU women's volleyball program have generated over $20,000 for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® foundation in the last seven years
SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – The seventh annual “Dig for the Cure” event sponsored by the Slippery Rock University women's volleyball team generated $900 for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® foundation, event coordinator Erin Street
“We are extremely happy to again be able to assist the Komen foundation in their quest to improve breast cancer awareness and fight the dreaded disease,” said Street, The Rock's assistant volleyball coach.
“We sincerely thank all our volleyball student-athletes, members of their families, our alumni and fans and everyone who helped with this event, not only this year but for the last seven years,” Street said. “Without everyone's support and involvement, we would be unable to continue this great project.”
SRU-based “Dig for the Cure” events have generated a total of $20,927.43 in the last seven years, Street reported.
The 2012 SRU “Dig for the Cure” event was held Oct. 16 as part of The Rock's home volleyball match vs. Emory University.
Donations to the Komen Foundation were generated by per-dig pledges by supporters, straight donations and the sale of raffle tickets for prizes from Slippery Rock area businesses.
