Tusculum College student-athletes raised nearly $1,400 to benefit Breast Cancer Awareness and Research.
Members of the Pioneer Student Athlete Advisory Council (PSAAC) raised the funds in October to benefit the efforts of breast cancer awareness and research. Numerous sporting events during the month were designated by the student-athletes, including the Tusculum volleyball team as their “Dig for the Cure” match raised over $1,000 to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
The PSAAC serves as the voice for student-athletes at Tusculum College to institutional leaders in matters of NCAA rules, regulations and policies that directly affect the student-athlete experience at Tusculum.
The PSAAC works diligently to give back to the local community, most notably its support of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Since 2003, NCAA Division II student-athletes have raised more than $1 million for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
