Press Release for Immediate Release
Pueblo, Colorado – Medical Assistant students from IntelliTec College got down and dirty this August, participating in a mud volleyball tournament to benefit the March of Dimes Foundation. Proceeds from the tournament, including the $400 team registration fee, went to benefit the March of Dimes in their efforts to promote healthy pregnancies resulting in healthy babies. IntelliTec students enjoyed participating in the event to raise money for a worthy cause.
The March of Dimes Mission is to “help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. If something goes wrong, we offer information and comfort to families. We research the problems that threaten our babies and work on preventing them.”
Mudd Volleyball has been a much anticipated event in Denver for the past 30 years. This year the March of Dimes foundation decided to bring the tournament to southern Colorado, starting in Pueblo. The March of Dimes Mudd Volleyball Tournament was held on Saturday August 10th in the field behind the Kmart on Highway 50 in Pueblo, from 9am to 2pm.
This public tournament featured various teams from around the community who all joined in to support a worthy cause. Approximately 50 teams of 10 played on four courts set in pools of mud before hundreds of spectators. Food and liquor vendors were present, as well as representatives for the March of Dimes.
IntelliTec got involved in the March of Dimes tournament as a response to a request from students to participate as an independent team. Former instructor Christa Cole put together a team of six students from IntelliTec’s Medical Assistant program.
Campus Director Andreas Nilsson explains that this “presented the opportunity to sponsor a great cause while increasing student involvement in the community as well as student satisfaction.”
