Area Teams Work Together For Cancer Awareness At Volley For The Cure

By  | 

They may be competitors on the court, but Thursday night three area volleyball teams came together for a good cause.

Both the Junior varsity and varsity teams from PHS, South and Ripley High Schools squared off on the court raising money for the Jaime Greathouse Benefit Fund.

Greathouse was the Williamstown J.V. Volleyball and Varsity Softball coach. She passed away in August from a rare and aggressive form of cancer. One Parkersburg's coaches says she hopes the Volley for the Cure event can touch a lot of lives.

"I just hope we can raise a lot of money for Jamie's family but also to raise awareness of cancer and the things people can do," says Lori Richards, the Assistant Volleyball Coach at PHS. "There's informational stuff and papers to hopefully prevent cancer from happening in their lives."

This is the fourth year PHS has participated in the event.
