DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire women’s volleyball team played host to another successful “Volley 4 Holly” event on Tuesday, May 12. The fifth-annual “Volley 4 Holly” tournament raised over $1,800 for the Holly Young Fund, while a tournament-record 30 teams competed including representatives from all 20-varsity programs in the athletic department.
The event was created to raise money for Wildcat volleyball player Holly Young, who passed away on Jan. 24, 2008 after a courageous three-year battle with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. The funds raised at the event will go to a scholarship setup in Young’s name at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, the Jimmy Fund and cancer research.
Teams made a minimum donation of $50, while several sponsors helped made the event even more successful.
For those who would still like to make a contribution to the tournament or the Holly Young Fund, please contact Associate Head Coach Stacy Barnett at 603-862-4664.
