EC Hosts Game in Honor of Those Affected by Cancer

The Eastside Catholic girl’s volleyball junior varsity and varsity teams hosted Holy Names in a special cancer awareness “No One Fights Alone” (NOFA) match on September 27. The team and Crusader fans wore special shirts in honor of family members affected by cancer. 

This year’s match was our most successful yet as we were able to donate $700 from shirt and visor sales to EC volleyball alumna Kat Towslee’s '14 No One Fights Alone Foundation. Kat created the foundation last year to raise awareness and provide support for those fighting all types of cancer and their caregivers.

The NOFA event was originally organized in 2012 by the EC Athletic Department and Eastside Catholic’s former volleyball coach, Angie McKinnell, who was battling cancer at the time. The year after the first NOFA game was held, one of the EC volleyball players was diagnosed with cancer, which brought additional meaning to the event.
