TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – In its continuous effort to give back to the community, the Florida State volleyball team will hosts its annual volleyball marathon on Saturday, March 17, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. in Tully Gymnasium on the Florida State campus. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Refuge House in Tallahassee.
Both student-athletes and coaches will be collecting pledges, which can also be made over the phone by calling the volleyball office at (850) 644-3003 or at the event. Donations can either be a flat amount or particular amount for each hour the marathon lasts.
“We’re just trying to do our part to help out the community,” FSU head coach Todd Kress said. “This community is such a huge supporter of not just Florida State volleyball, but of every sport on campus, so it’s important to us that our team gives back.”
While the volleyball team will be the primary competitors during the marathon, area volleyball players as well as FSU student-athletes are encouraged to come out and play.
The Refuge House is a shelter for battered women and children. For more information on the Refuge House, visit their official website.
