KC Volleyball to Host “Fighting for Fred” Game on September 6

The Kaskaskia College Blue Angels Volleyball team will take on Lewis and Clark College on September 6 at 6 pm with part of the proceeds going toward the “Fighting for Fred” fund to help long-time Mater Dei coach and educator Fred Rakers in his battle with cancer.


According to the “Fighting for Fred” Facebook page, “Fred Rakers has been a teacher, friend, coach, and role model to children and adults all over Southern Illinois. Recently, he began his battle with cancer. He has been fighting for and with each of us for the past 45 years, it is our turn to fight for him.”


Both Blue Angels Assistant Volleyball coach Cortney Crocker, and her sister Chelsea, who plays on the team, were coached by Fred Rakers at Mater Dei High School, and conceived the “Fighting for Fred” game and Facebook page.  Head KC Volleyball Coach Kim Rahar said “This is a way for us to give back to someone who has touched so many lives and given so much to the game.”


Please come out on September 6 at 6 pm and show your support for the Blue Angels and for Fred Rakers.​
