LEWISTON, Idaho – LC State Volleyball will host its annual Breast Cancer Awareness match on Saturday when the Warriors take on No. 6 Corban at 5 p.m. in the P1FCU Activity Center. Proceeds from the match will go to the Gina Quesenberry Foundation and the first 150 fans to come through the door will receive a pink rally towel, sponsored by Pepsi. All fans will receive a pink ribbon to wear to bring honor and awareness to the fight against breast cancer.
“We all know someone that has been affected by breast cancer, either directly or indirectly,” Head Coach Shaun Pohlman said. “While that pain can never go away, we all get a chance to bring awareness and we can all find our own humility within their strength to recognize these incredible Warriors. It is an honor to do so.”
Prior to the first serve, the Warriors will take the time to honor the individuals and families impacted by the fight against breast cancer. Those in attendance that feel comfortable will be asked to stand prior to the National Anthem to receive a pink flower and words of encouragement from student-athletes and the coaching staff.
“We are proud to team up with the Gina Quesenberry Foundation again this year to help bring awareness to this disease,” Athletic Director Brooke Henze said. “This is a special night each season and I am glad we are able to honor those who have fought and are currently fighting.”
The Gina Quesenberry Foundation provides financial assistance for LC Valley residents diagnosed with breast cancer. For more information, visit www.gqfoundation.org.
