Kansas Wesleyan's volleyball team in pink jerseys

The athletic department at Kansas Wesleyan University is spearheading another campaign to raise funds for breast cancer awareness. Last year, the volleyball and soccer teams presented a check for $4700 to Tammy Walker Cancer Center and this year the goal is $6,000 for the same organization.

This week, the Coyote teams celebrate “Pink Week” on campus; everyone is encouraged to wear pink to the Coyote sporting events. The volleyball and soccer teams will auction pink Nike game day jerseys, with a minimum bid starting at $50, the football team will auction one home game jersey, and pink Coyote t-shirts will be available for purchase at $10 each or $12 for sizes xxl and up. In addition, the volleyball team will raffle three pink volleyballs; soccer will raffle two pink balls, and football will auction the game ball from this Saturday’s contest against Bethel College. Raffle tickets will be just $1 each. The cheer and dance squad will raffle a signed KWU megaphone. In addition, at each contest, there will be a bake sale and half of the door proceeds from the football game will benefit Tammy Walker.
