MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM)-If you visited Pere Marquette Park recently, you may have wondered where there is a stack of storage containers on the beach.
Saturday, we finally got the answer. Wellspring Prep High School in Grand Rapids is organizing a volleyball game two stories up. The storage containers are being constructed into a two story volleyball court for Megan Haan, 15, who has been battling bone cancer. Organizers say she loves volleyball and a game overlooking Lake Michigan is the perfect surprise for her.
"To see her play volleyball and to se how she interacts with her team and fight so hard, is just so inspiring to all of us," explained promoter and organizer Rob Bliss. "Little does she know that her family, her friends, her classmates, the community that's helped make this for her is going to be there in support to give her the best day of volleyball ever."
Haan has been in remission for two years. She's on vacation without access to the Internet or a phone, so she has no idea about the surprise volleyball game. The public is invited to watch or play in the free matchup, which starts at noon on Tuesday, August 7.
