Marshall Recreation Center to hold second annual Big Pink Volleyball tournament


The  Recreation Center will hold its second annual Big Pink Volleyball tournament at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18.

The tournament will benefit the St. Mary’s Pink Ribbon Fund and PATH to the Cure, which raises money for the prevention and treatment of breast cancer.

The event, which features a bright pink volleyball measuring 4 feet in diameter, raised $1,000 for the organization last year.

Participants can register during PATH to a Cure registration  at the Recreation Center’s welcome desk by Oct. 13.  Cost to register for the event is $5 per person.

There will be divisions for student organizations, residence halls, businesses and individuals. Teams must have a minimum of four people.

The amount of teams registered will determine if the tournament will be single or double elimination. The winning team will receive an award following the final round.

Shirts can be purchased at the event for $10 for short sleeves and $13 for long sleeves. Participants are encouraged to wear pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
