Edison’s girl’s volleyball team partnered with an online fundraiser called Vertical Raise.  As a team, they had to raise $5,000 to pay for gear, travel expenses, and tournament fees.  Within 2 weeks they reached their goal. The team put that money to good use, going to three tournaments so far this season.   

Those three tournaments took them to Merced, Newman, and Santa Cruz. After long-fought sets, Edison’s girls’ volleyball team placed 2nd in Newman, 3rd in Merced, and 4th in Santa Cruz. Without the funds they raised through Vertical Raise, none of it would have been possible.
