Area Volleyball Players Host Dig Pink Games for Breast Cancer Awareness
It’s called Dig Pink! and its a fundraising event for breast cancer through the Side-Out Foundation. The term side-out refers to a situation in volleyball when one team wins a point while its opponent is serving, thereby regaining serve or control of play – analogous to the efforts of the Side-Out Foundation. The Foundation is dedicated to making a significant and identifiable difference in the lives of breast cancer patients and their families by supporting clinical trials, increasing compassionate support services and educating communities More than 500 college volleyball teams and 1,500 high school and middle school volleyball teams participate in this campaign.
Teams across the county are hosting a special Dig Pink game where players wear pink uniforms, and there are special events and programming for fans. It’s all to raise money to promote Breast Cancer Awareness this month.
