Dig Deep: Volleyball Tournament
An event hosted by Johns Hopkins Women’s Volleyball Team, Dig Deep, rallied 15 teams and 150 participants to battle it out on the volleyball court to raise money and awareness for JED. Students gathered at the tournament to learn more about JED’s mission and openly discuss issues like suicide and mental health.
To publicize the event, the team posted on social media often tagging @johnshopikins and using the hashtag they created, #hopkinsdigdeep. They reached out to other groups on campus for support and many of the University’s graduate schools helped spread the word via their social media handles and email list outreach.
The team raised $1,500 and was so pleased with the turnout that they are planning to make the tournament an annual event in support of JED.
We are so grateful to these incredible women!
