Lady Chucks show support for Lisa’s Ladybugs with their Dig Pink shirts

The Lady Chucks volleyball team held the 7th annual Dig Pink game to raise money for the organization Lisa’s Ladybugs.
Lisa’s Ladybugs has the mission of helping those in our local community who were diagnosed with cancer and their families.
Coach Heather Good said, “Lisa’s Ladybugs is a fantastic organization for the local community, because of what they do for the community.”
Good said this year’s game raised the most money out of all previous years, over $4,800. This came from the Chinese auction, a bake sale, Dig Pink shirt sales, and a serving competition.
This year, the players went around to local businesses and collected donations and baskets for the Chinese auction. Good said the players do a lot of the organization for the game.
Player Madi Fye said the game is personal for the team, and the team feels good supporting the organization.
“As a team, it connects us with the community,” Fye said, “[it] motivates us more, [it’s] something to work for.”
Fye said handing out flowers to those affected in some way by cancer connects the team with their family and friends. She also said it gives a moment to reflect on those who have been lost.
Not only is there support from the team, but Fye said this year’s game had one of the biggest turnouts, and she said the student section was one of the largest she’s ever seen.
All of the proceeds earned from the Dig Pink game were donated to Lisa’s Ladybugs in support of the fight against cancer.
