Dig Pink® with the Side-Out Foundation

VOLLEYBALL IS impacting lives

The Side-Out Foundation and the AVCA are working together to provide student-athletes meaningful experiences while using our amazing sport of volleyball to bring people together to accomplish a common goal.

Through Dig Pink® initiatives, volleyball teams are collectively accomplishing the goal of recognizing and serving the stage IV breast cancer community through the funding of game-changing clinical research and patient services.

Your team’s support is needed this season to help unite all volleyball programs across the nation behind this great cause. Become a part of the Dig Pink® Rally with us by hosting a Dig Pink initiative at your school in support of The Side-Out Foundation. All proceeds benefit Side-Out’s cutting-edge clinical trials at renowned medical institutions as well as high-quality support services for cancer patients and their families.
