Eastside High School volleyball team, with the help of their opponent East Noble, dedicated a night of fundraising for our breast cancer clients. The “Volley for a Cure” event took place at Eastside High School on Wednesday, September 14, with a match between Eastside and East Noble High School volleyball teams.
“Fight Like a Girl”, the theme for this years event, raised $1,500 combined from the two high school’s shirt and raffle ticket sales. A total of 350 shirts were sold to Eastside and East Noble fans, which represented this year’s “Fight Like a Girl” theme.
The coaches behind the planning of this event were Eastside’s Megan Callahan and Ashley Everhart and East Noble’s, Nicki Ramey. Both teams were found wearing pink accessories with their uniforms to aid in raising awareness for breast cancer and those affected.
At last night’s match up between Bishop Luers and Snider High Schools volleyball teams, students raised money for Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana by selling pink t-shirts and hosting a raffle. Cancer Services staff members Kathy Ryan and Linda Bewley attended the game.

On September 14, the East Noble and Eastside Volleyball teams held a special event during their volleyball match called Volley for a Cure. The two teams hosted the event to raise money for Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana.
In the words of the team captains, Lauren Fulk and Megan Strock, “The night was about more than a volleyball match. It was about taking the idea of teamwork to the next level. Two communities, working together for one common goal; to raise money to help their friends and neighbors who are in need of assistance from Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana. By everyone giving a little, together we made a big difference for someone. So no matter what the outcome of the match, in our ‘playbook’ everyone here is a winner!”
The teams raised over $2900 for Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana.
