The GFWC(General Federated Women’s Club) Friendship and Service Club in conjunction with the Akron-Westfield volleyball team held a cancer awareness event at the Westerners home volleyball games on the 6th and 9th of October, 2012.
During the “Volley for a cure events” the players wore pink jerseys. At the matches pink pom poms were sold and all proceeds were donated to the June E. Nylen Cancer Center. Though the two events were held in October, which is breast cancer awarness month, the donations were to be used for patients suffering from any type of cancer.
