GW Volleyball Hosting Play for ME/CFS Tournament
March 26, 2013
WASHINGTON - The George Washington volleyball team is hosting a charity volleyball tournament on April 21 at the Charles E. Smith Center, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Open Medicine Institute.
Open Medicine Institute is the leading organization in researching and finding a cure for myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME), or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
ME/CFS is a neurological viral immune disorder that can cause dysfunction of the brain, gastrointestinal, immune, endocrine and cardiac systems. In the U.S. alone, there are more than 1 million people who have ME/CFS, and it affects more than 8 million people worldwide.
In an effort to raise money and awareness for the cause, the GW volleyball team will be hosting a reverse coed 4's volleyball tournament on April 21. Registration is now open.
