DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire women’s volleyball team has announced that the team will hold the fifth-annual “Volley 4 Holly” tournament on Tuesday, May 12 in Lundholm Gymnasium from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
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 Holly Young Fund, while checks can be made out to Friends of UNH Volleyball. Holly Young Fund donates the money to the Holly Young scholarship set up at her high school, the Jimmy Fund and to cancer research.
Teams can sign up until Tuesday, May 5. Teams may enter the tournament with a donation of $50 dollars and can enter up to 12 players per roster (minimum six). Fans may attend the tournament by donating $2 dollars as they enter Lundholm Gym. UNH varsity athletic teams, coaches and staff will be on hand participating in the tournament honoring Holly’s memory and helping raise money for a worthy cause.
