Jordan Larson On Athletes Unlimited Volleyball: ‘Being Able To Play Pro In The United States Is Amazing’

While every professional athlete has a different motivating factor, one of the biggest things that drives Larson is raising awareness about breast cancer. The silver and bronze medalist lost her mother to breast cancer over a decade ago and she was always one of the biggest reasons for Larson’s success on the court. Each player in Athletes Unlimited Volleyball will have a cause they will be playing for this season.

“I chose the Pink Fund because my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and I was pretty young in high school,” said Larson. “At the time when she got re-diagnosed, my family had to move and they lost a job. Times were tough a little bit financially. The Pink Fund allows money to be raised to help women in need. I’m really excited to be able to represent that. My mom passed away and it will be 11 years this year. This is in honor of her and I want to dedicate that to her.”
