Every October, Feather River College holds a weekend of sporting events that raise money for breast cancer awareness. The annual series of events, called Dig for a Cure, is hitting home a lot closer this year. The events set for this weekend will raise funds for FRC alumna and former athlete Deedra Desentz.
Desentz, a Quincy resident, was diagnosed with breast cancer last July. Desentz recently had a double mastectomy and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. Thus, this year’s event lineup will be called Dig for Deedra, Dig for a Cure.
