WIU Volleyball Raises Money for Linda’s Fund


MACOMB, Ill. – The Western Illinois University volleyball team donated nearly $1,200 to McDonough District Hospital’s Linda’s Fund. The money was raised during the Leathernecks’ Pinktober events held during the 2017 season. 

Through the three October home matches, WIU head coach Kelly Richardson and her squad raised $1,197 to help MDH breast cancer patients and their families. Linda’s Fund provides direct financial assistance to pay medical bills not covered by insurance, special adaptive clothing and personal care products for patients.

For additional information or to make a contribution, contact the MDH Foundation office at (309) 836-1757.
