Penn State Men's Volleyball Participates in "EIVA Rallies" Campaign
Feb. 6, 2013
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The seventh-ranked Penn State men's volleyball team, a member of the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association (EIVA), is participating in the "EIVA Rallies" campaign benefitting the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
"The EIVA partnership with Sloan-Kettering and cancer research touches every one of us," said head coach Mark Pavlik. "We all know someone who has been touched by cancer. I think the EIVA and all the coaches and players understand how meaningful it is to support cancer research and the efforts Sloan-Kettering."
This weekend, when Penn State plays its travel partner Saint Francis on Friday, Feb. 8, coach Pavlik will don a fedora to help raise awareness of the campaign. He will again don the hat when the Nittany Lions visit the Red Flash on March 23.
The Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is one of the world's oldest and largest private cancer centers. It has dedicated more than a century to patient care and innovative research.
Coach Pavlik, the Nittany Lions and the rest of the EIVA programs hope fans will join their efforts in supporting the mission of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. For more information on Sloan-Kettering and how to donate, please visit. www.mskcc.org/giving.
Penn State hosts Saint Francis and Ohio State this weekend at Rec Hall. The Lions face the Red Flash at 7 p.m. on Feb. 8 and challenges on the Buckeyes on Feb. 9 at 8 p.m.
