After raising more than $1,450 in its “Dig Pink” match against Taxas-Arlington on Oct. 9, the Texas State volleyball team is working with Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) to keep the money in San Marcos.

The volleyball program is working through the CTMC Foundation to help local cancer survivors in need. Funds were raised through a silent auction, as well as through donations collected at games throughout the month of October.
CTMC will combine the money with other donations aimed at breast cancer outreach at CTMC to provide services and assistance to breast cancer patients in our community.
“Not only is this team exceptional on the court, they are exceptional role models for our community,” says John Navarrette, past president of the CTMC Foundation. “It is such a blessing to see these students so eager to give to those in need.”
This year, the volleyball team made its seventh NCAA appearance. To commemorate the team’s 13-game win streak that rallied it to the national tournament, Navarrette held true to his word and dyed his hair blonde.
