CHICOPEE, Mass. – The Elms College men’s and women’s volleyball teams in conjunction with the pink-out event hosted by the women’s volleyball and field hockey teams raised the sum of $4,100 dollars on Saturday.
Be Bold, Be Bald! is a national fundraising event that takes place wherever you are. Participants go bald by boldly wearing a bald cap (or very boldly shaving their head) to honor those who bravely fight cancer and raise money to help fight back. Participants get sponsored for their bold move, and choose the charity they want their proceeds to benefit.
Through the very generous donations of many people in the Elms College community, the Blazers’ volleyball teams and field hockey team raised over $4,100 which will be donated directly to the Jimmy Fund.
As part of the movement, head men’s and women’s volleyball coach Sheila Gisbrecht, and athletics director Peter Krasny, both shaved their heads in support.
The athletics department would also like to thank Bay Path College and WPI for their participation during the event as well by wearing pink and donating to such a worthy cause.
