Diggin the Cause, an event held at SPASH by the volleyball team on Sept. 27 is one of many events that SPASH holds for charity. Diggin the Cause is focused on breast cancer and raising money for research. The event has been held at SPASH for eight years now.

Diggin the Cause goal was to raise $10,000 for research. All profit was donated to Breast Care Fund in association with the Ascension/Saint Michael’s Foundation. SPASH does not have a total amount yet but it is over their goal of $10,000.

Julie Johnson the head coach of SPASH volleyball team, was very excited for Diggin the Cause and feels, “super proud every year. It’s a special night with tons of support from the school community,” said Johnson.

Diggin the Cause has a huge effect on the team that night, according to Hannah Meyer, a member of the SPASH volleyball team, “It gives a boost of confidence in the team and brings you together more,”  Meyer said.

That night was also a great night for the team. With the Digging the Cause victory, SPASH’s volleyball team record moved to 29-2.

    That’s awesome! I’m happy to read that they go over the limit of 10,000 that is so cool! I think this article is very important because it is a very serious topic and I find it great that our school does something like this. And I hope they continue to do it through out the years. This article was very good and was very well written.

    This was a good event and I think they should continue to hold events like this in the future. People should support each other in as many ways as possible. Cancer is a very big issue in today’s world and people should stand together to overcome this struggle.
