EUGENE, Ore. -- The Sheldon High School volleyball team raised money Tuesday night for cancer awareness, particularly breast cancer, at their game against Roseburg High School.

The volleyball team is collecting donations at their junior varsity and varsity games by selling baked goods and passing around a pink rubber boot for fans in the crowd to put money into. 

This is the eleventh year the team has raised money for the American Cancer Foundation. 

One of the players anticipates that they will raise a couple thousand dollars for breast cancer awareness. 

The fundraiser for the American Cancer Foundation hits close to home to one of the players in particular. 

"I do have a family member who has cancer, so it is pretty close to me and some of my friends' parents have had breast cancer, so its pretty close to my heart," said Natalie Schnoor, a varisty player. 

Win or lose, Sheldon High volleyball members said they are thrilled to be raising money for a good cause again this year.
