Volleyball Team Supports Local Cancer Patients

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Local cancer patients are being helped, thanks to the Immanuel Lutheran School 5th-8th grade volleyball players and their fans. The team's 2023 Pink Game Night raised $780 for Aspirus Riverview Foundation's Cancer Patient Fund.

The fundraiser included a t-shirt sale, dessert bake sale, and penny war. On Pink Game Night, pink carnations were presented to cancer patients and survivors, and the team honored one of the school's teachers, who is a breast cancer survivor. The fundraiser taught the players about teambuilding, honoring loved ones, and giving back to the community.

Aspirus Riverview Foundation’s Cancer Patient Fund helps patients of Aspirus Cancer Care-Wisconsin Rapids with costs related to their treatment for which there are no other resources available. Typical examples include nutrition supplements, transportation to appointments, Home Delivered Meals, grocery cards, utility and rent assistance, and more.

Aspirus Riverview Foundation supports community-based efforts that align with improving the community's greatest health and wellness needs. To learn more about the foundation, visit aspirus.org/aspirus-riverview-foundation.
