The Bison women's volleyball team stays involved with community service efforts

WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University women’s volleyball team has been busy offering their time this semester doing community service.

On August 29, the team got together to help move the Outreach office from the Office of Admissions in EMG Memorial Building to the newly renovated Peet Hall.

"It was a pleasure to have the Gallaudet women's volleyball team assist in our move from EMG to Peet Hall," said Jesse Saunders the Director of Youth Programs at Gallaudet University. "With their assistance, it turned what would have been an all-day job into a very quick move."

On September 11, the Bison team traveled to Maryland School for the Deaf in Frederick, Md., to read to two groups of kindergarten students and held a volleyball clinic for the middle school students.

The Bison also showed their support for the Go4theGoal campaign on Sept. 25 and 26 by wearing yellow shoelaces. Go4theGoal is helping to raise funds and awareness for local patients being treated for childhood cancer.

Beth and Richard Stefanacci began their journey in May 2006 when their oldest child, Richard, was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, Ewing’s Sarcoma. Richard lost his battle with cancer just a few months before his 15th birthday, but the journey wasn’t over for the Stefanacci family. Richard’s cousin Blake was later diagnosed with another rare form of pediatric cancer, Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. Blake beat her cancer and has been in remission for several years.

Go4theGoal Foundation’s unwavering mission is to improve the lives of children battling cancer by providing financial support, developing and implementing unique hospital programs, funding innovative research, and granting personal wishes.
