March 24 Snow Volleyball Tournament Benefits Wilmot Cancer Center

March 21, 2007

Students and staff at Churchville-Chili High School will play snow – or mud – volleyball at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 24, to support the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

The Snowball Tournament to Fight Cancer at the high school will feature teams of students and staff competing for prizes, including a party package to Hot Shots, an indoor sand volleyball club. There will also be drawings for a number of other prizes.

The students are supporting the Wilmot Cancer Center because so many people in the Churchville community have been affected by cancer. High School social studies teachers Chelsea Carl and Jim Hauck are organizing the tournament with a group of government students.

The Wilmot Cancer Center is raising $42.5 million to expand cancer care and research.  The funds will be used to construct a new, state-of-the-art facility to consolidate patient care and laboratory research.  The Wilmot Cancer Center is working to become one of the top cancer centers in the nation.
