Dig Teal

This month is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.  Our High School girls volleyball teams have taken on raising money for a couple of families in the Christian Academy in Japan (CAJ) community who are dealing with ovarian cancer.  They raised money by selling cupcakes, cookies, and key rings.  They also set up informational presentations for those interested in learning more about ovarian cancer.

Today was DigTeal day at CAJ.  Many students and staff wore teal colored shirts.  This evening Seisen International School brought their JV and Varsity volleyball teams to play CAJ's teams.  The gym was quite full with many fans wearing teal coloured shirts.  Before the Varsity team began their games, one of the moms shared her journey with ovarian cancer.  It was quite a powerful presentation.  Here are a few pictures of the evening.
