Volleyball Players Raise Money for Philippines Typhoon Relief

Posted: Updated:

Young volleyball players got a few tips from the Lady Bears today -- and it was all for a good cause.

The "Volley for the Philippines" clinic was held at Baylor University and sponsored by Heart of Texas Volleyball Institute.

They had two sessions, one for middle school and one for high school.

Students had a chance to work on technique, play in a mini-tournament and raise money for victims of the typhoon that hit the Philippines in November.

"It was really fun! The Lady Bears taught us a lot of good techniques," said Taylen Wallis.

Van Davis of Heart of Texas Volleyball Institute said it's a great way to play the sport they love and do something for others.

"...Now they also learned that through volleyball, they can give to a special cause," Davis said.

The fee to get into the clinic was a $10 donation, but many families gave more than that.

All of the money raised will go to the American Red Cross Philippines fund.
