Think Pink Match funds IV pump
The volleyball teams from Prairie High School and Kamiah High School joined together last October to hold a Think Pink Match. This event actually started as a senior project for a couple of the Prairie senior players but ended up evolving into a fund raiser for St. Mary’s Hospital.
Demetria Riener and Monica Lustig from Prairie along with Bailey Nygaard and Taylor LeCates from Kamiah joined forces to organize this cancer awareness event. By selling pink shirts and pink volleyballs along with the donation of this night’s earning from the match referee they were able to earn $1134.50 which they donated to St. Mary’s Hospital.
St. Mary’s used the money to purchase a Trilogy IV pump; which the hospital just recently received. A Trilogy IV pump is basically three IV pumps in one. This pump can be used for cancer patients when they receive chemotherapy, antibiotics, fluids, etc. Not only will cancer patients be able to use this pump but other patients as well will benefit from this new pump.
Both schools are hoping that this will become an annual event. The next Think Pink Match will be held in Kamiah.
Prairie’s Volleyball team and coach along with Kathy Seubert ,RN from St. Mary’s Hospital show off the new IV pump.
