Set, spike, point – raise money for kids!

October 12, 2008 —

Don’t miss the Des Moines University Co-ed Volleyball Tournament to raise money for Camp Hertko Hollow, Iowa’s diabetes education camp for kids!

It’s Saturday, Nov. 8, 8:30 a.m. til 6 p.m. and costs $8/person. This is open to the public.

Teams will be 4-6 people. It’s a double-elim tourney. Rally score to 21. Best 2 outta 3 takes the match. Prizes for first and second teams.

The best prize of all, of course, is the that the money raised will help kids! Camp Hertko Hollow is a great program and that’s why DMU’s Student National Podiatric Medical Association and American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine clubs are sponsoring this event.

    In some sports events held here in our country, it was already a practice here that a part of the event’s revenue was donated to a charity. A good way to help other. =)

      Yes, the tournament raised about $500 for the camp. I posted follow-up details on Dec. 4 if you’d like to see it!
