Volleying for a Cause
Elwood-John H. Glenn High School students came together to support a good cause and to take part in some healthy competition during the school’s annual Volleyball-a-Thon on Mar. 1. This year’s chosen causes were the Sean Urda Memorial Soccer Scholarship, Save the Kid and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
All 41 participating teams showed up to the competition in the high school gymnasium with matching team t-shirts, donning creative names such as “Elected to Serve” and “Set it and Forget it,” as well as a whole lot of enthusiasm. Collectively, teams raised $3,010 for the selected causes.
Each team competed on one of the four volleyball courts until one group, the “Birds,” was victorious and crowned the 2018 Volleyball-a-Thon champs.
