news-#Jillystrong fundraiser-Joe Valley Volleyball Club-Doyle Community Center

Joe Valley Volleyball Club is hosting a #Jillystrong fundraiser Aug. 6 at Doyle Community Center.

All proceeds from the day-long event will go to Jillian Romanyk’s fund held at St. Joseph County United Way, said club owner Brian Jordan.

Jillian was a member of Joe Valley Volley Club, Jordan said. She was involved in a car crash on June 17 on US 12 and was airlifted from the scene, with life-threatening injuries. Jillian’s spinal cord was severed, and her left foot was amputated. Among other injuries, she is paralyzed from the waist down.

The event consists of sand and indoor volleyball tournaments. Jordan said sign-up ended Friday and about 20 teams will participate. A cornhole tournament has been postponed to a later date, to be announced.
