Dear Friends and Fans of Bellaire Volleyball’s Lauren Donovan,

Bellaire’s varsity players will be unable to be with Lauren Donovan as she leads “Team Lauren” in the Head For the Cure 5K Race next Saturday morning.  In an effort to support her, we are asking Bellaire Volleyball fans and teammates to wear a “Team Lauren” t-shirt next Friday and the following Saturday morning as the Lady Cardinals  take the court against the Panthers from Houston Heights High.

Through a generous donation, each varsity player and team manager will receive an adult large, “Team Lauren” t-shirt.  Friends, coaches, teachers, family members and Bellaire Volleyball fans can support Lauren by ordering and wearing their own Team Lauren t-shirt!
The cost to make the t-shirt is $15. The vendors who designed, supplied and printed the “Team Lauren” t-shirts are forgoing their markup.  Any donation above the cost of the shirts will go 100% to Team Lauren’s “Head for the Cure” fund raising. You can make a donation at the time of paying for the t-shirts or go to the link below and join Lauren’s “Head for a Cure” Team. Any donation of any amount is greatly appreciated.

If you would like to order a shirt, contact, Barbara or David Hawes by 10am tomorrow; Friday, October 6th.  The order must be placed by 10:30 am.  If you want a size other than large please indicate that as well. 
T-shirts will arrive on Wednesday, October 11th and will be handed out at school, so fans can wear the shirt to school on Friday the 13th and Bellaire Volleyball teammates can wear their t-shirts to Saturday’s 10am match versus The Heights.
Barb and David Hawes will collect cash only donations at next home games.  Do not send money to school.


Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure 5K - Houston next Saturday, October 14th.

Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research and works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy.

Every Head for the Cure event marks a day of celebration where those diagnosed with brain cancer are honored and celebrated by their friends and families, those who have lost their battles are remembered, and we are all inspired to carry on the fight. 

Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of medical centers with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.

Each year, over 200,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight.

Please consider making a donation today in support of Team Lauren to help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
