Believe in the Fight for a Cure -  October 

"Believe Night" is a 8-school program in the Temecula/Murrieta area that has been engaging girls volleyball programs for 15 years with education about breast cancer, its early detection and how to raise funds to help local non-profits combat it.

Every fall, the  girls high school volleyball programs from the surrounding areas participate in a program with about 500 student-athletes in a month-long effort of education and fundraising. 

Presented in association with Michelle’s Place, a Temecula-based breast cancer resource center, and the Kim Horton Scholarship Foundation, a memorial scholarship fund named for Kim Horton, a former Elsinore volleyball coach, the “Believe in the Fight for a Cure” program has been a beacon of awareness in Southwestern Riverside County for a decade.


Players sell pink ribbons to family and friends for $1 donations to Michelle’s Place and "Believe" T-shirts with the the names of all participating high schools. All T-shirt sales go to the Kim Horton Scholarship Fund, which helps local volleyball players with college expenses.

Players wear their"Believe" shirts which supports the Kim Horton Foundation Scholarship. Each players receives one shirt with their Commitment Pack but additional shirts can be purchased for only $10.

Kim Horton Foundation Scholarship


Kim Horton played volleyball at the University of New Mexico, she spent many years coaching at Viper Volleyball Club and was the head coach of Elsinore High School from 2003-2013. Kim Horton was a Champion. She led Elsinore to the CIF champion- ship game in 2006 and 2009, winning the first Girls sports CIF championship in the school’s history in 2009.

Today, the entrance and trophy case of the Elsinore High School gym is named the Kim Horton Hall of Champions. A Champion is someone who gets up, even when she can’t. Kim’s character embodied that of a champion, built on the foundations of Strength, Dedication, Care, Passion, Heart, Intelligence, Tough- ness, and most of all Love.

Kim left a legacy with the players she coached. Like Kim we will fight to the very end and give everything we have. We will never give up, no matter how difficult things get. We will not let go of our dreams even when they seem to have slipped from our grasp. We will offer ourselves to others and always fight.
We will be champions like Kim.

Kim Horton changed her community with her love and dedication to making those around her better. We join together each with players in our community to celebrate her life and continue her legacy.
