St. John Catholic School Volleyball Team Raises Money to Fight Breast Cancer
Fundraiser Volleyball Tri-Match Set for October 3
Saint John the Evangelist Catholic School’s (SJCS) volleyball team recently organized a bake sale to raise funds to support those in the community fighting breast cancer. The team hosted the bake sale at school and after Mass at St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, raising $1,000.
The school is hosting a breast cancer fundraiser volleyball tri-match event on Monday, October 3 in honor of Stephanie Nelson, a SJCS parent who passed away in 2020. The proceeds of the funds raised from the bake sale and the volleyball game will go to the Cameron family of Tallahassee who recently lost their mother to breast cancer.
“It is important for our students to understand the importance of helping one another, especially those battling cancer, and to demonstrate that compassion,” said SJCS Volleyball Coach Tiffany Mira. “Not only did these athletes plan a fundraiser and upcoming game, they are also praying for those in the community who have overcome and those who are still in the fight.”
The breast cancer volleyball tri-match event is Monday, October 3 and begins at 4:00 PM with a match against Lighthouse Christian School. The second game begins at 5:00 PM between Lighthouse Christian School and Scintilla Charter Academy followed by a 6:00 PM match between SJCS and Scintilla Charter Academy. The games will take place in the SJCS Parish Center located at 800 Gornto Road in Valdosta. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students.
