The Charleston High School and Mattoon High School volleyball teams faced off in their “Volley for a Cure” game on Tuesday, September 27, where they presented a check for $4,724.36 to SBL for the Regional Cancer Center. Both schools sold T-shirts for the game, and the donation to SBL was the total money raised from those sales.

Since 2013, the schools have supported the SBL Regional Cancer Center through Volley for a Cure, raising a total of $27,661.96.

Volley for a Cure is an initiative that schools across the country participate in, in which they raise money for local cancer patients or services.
