Volleyball Teams Help Local Cancer Patients

WISCONSIN RAPIDS & NEKOOSA, WI – Two area high school volleyball teams are helping local cancer patients with the proceeds of their recent “pink” games.

The Nekoosa High School team and fans raised $2,048 with their September 21 “Pink Out” game. The team held a coffee fundraiser, sold concessions, and raffled off gift baskets donated by area businesses.

The Wisconsin Rapids Assumption team and its supporters raised $2,814 with their October 3 “Volley for a Cause” game through the sale of t-shirts and a gift basket raffle.

Both teams donated their proceeds to Aspirus Riverview Foundation’s Cancer Patient Fund. The 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 strives to support community-based efforts that align with improving the community's greatest health and wellness needs.
