Clemson Volleyball To Participate In “Dig For The Cure” Campaign

Sept. 28, 2006

CLEMSON, SC – Head volleyball coach Jolene Jordan Hoover has announced that her team will participate in the “Dig for the Cure” campaign to raise money for the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation. The Tigers’ match against Wake Forest on Friday, Oct. 27 has been designated as Clemson’s “Dig for the Cure” event.

Individual sponsors can pledge money per dig earned by their team in the match, or can make a flat donation to the cause. Members of the Tiger volleyball team will have pledge sheets, or individuals may contact Assistant Volleyball Coach Korrinn Krog via email at kkrog@clemson.edu for more information.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. Today, the Foundation is an international organization with a network of more than 75,000 volunteers working through local affiliates and events like the Komen Race for the Cure(r) to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease.

A global leader in the fight against breast cancer, the Foundation fulfills its mission through support of innovative breast cancer research grants, meritorious awards and educational, scientific and community outreach programs around the world. Together with its Affiliate Network, corporate partners and generous donors, the Komen Foundation has raised more than $740 million for the fight against breast cancer.
