Blinn Volleyball Raises Money, Awareness for Childhood Cancer

The crowd was loud in the Blinn P.E. Building Thursday night, and for good reason, the Blinn College (Texas) volleyball team reeled off its 10th-straight victory. To make the night even more special, the Bucs hosted Adam’s Angels Night in support of Adam’s Angels Ministries, a non-profit organization founded by Donna and Tim Culliver of Brenham, Texas, as a way to reach out to families that have been affected by childhood cancer. The Cullivers lost their 4-year-old son, Adam Christian Culliver, to acute myelogenous leukemia.

Members of Adam’s Angels joined the Bucs during the pregame ceremony and were recognized during an intermission before the third set.

It’s a match that held a lot of meaning to Mellinger and the Bucs.

“I’m so happy we get to support an organization like Adam’s Angels,” head coach Erin Mellinger said. “Anything we can ever do to help them, we’ll always be there.”
