Come and support the NHS girls’ volleyball team and Ms. Sara Bork on Thursday, Oct. 10, as they take on Appleton North in the Fieldhouse.

The girls will be wearing green tie-dye jerseys in representation of support of Bork’s fight against cancer as well as green scrunchies. The opposing Appleton North team will also be supporting Ms. Bork by wearing green scrunches too.

Lime green represents Lymphoma Awareness.

Not only is this a volleyball game but a fundraiser for Ms. Bork, who was diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer for the second time. The fundraiser will consist of a raffle basket, Miracle Minute donations, silent auction, and hair scrunchies will be for sale.

Many social media posts have promoted the event, and English teacher Mrs. Jen Hager via Twitter asked everyone to spread the word.  “Mark your calendars. Come support volleyball and Ms. Bork.”

All of the sales will begin at the start of the JV game at 5:30 p.m, followed by the beginning of the varsity game at 7 p.m. They will be announcing the winners, of the raffle basket, between sets two and three of the varsity volleyball game. 

Bring support not only to the volleyball team in their journey to success, but Ms. Bork as she fights her own battle.
