The Bombers will play JV and varsity matches against Penn Yan on Oct. 14 in collaboration with the Side-Out Foundation to benefit cancer research
The Bloomfield Bombers girls volleyball teams will Dig Pink! on Monday, Oct. 14 when they host Penn Yan for a pair of matches that will benefit breast cancer research. The junior varsity match begins at 5 p.m. with the varsity to follow at 6:30.
The Bombers and Mustangs are collaborating with the Side-Out Foundation for Monday’s matches. Side-Out is a national non-profit organization that empowers athletes to fight Stage IV breast cancer by raising funds to sponsor targeted therapy clinical trials.
Bloomfield is hosting this year’s event in memory of Meg Murphy: former MS/HS nurse, Drama Club devotee, and one of Bloomfield’s biggest hearts. The volleyball teams will conduct raffles and hold a silent auction of items donated by local businesses.
There is no fee to attend but pink jars will be on-site to collect monetary donations from guests.
Side-Out has provided the girls on the Bloomfield Bombers volleyball teams with the perfect avenue by which to effect change and make a difference. Side-Out and the Bloomfield Bombers believe, as Nelson Mandela said, that “Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair.”
Each Bloomfield player has worked hard to make this evening one of fun competition while also bringing awareness to The Side-Out Protocol to fund targeted therapy clinical trials in treating Stage IV Breast Cancer.
