Dig Pink® with the Side-Out Foundation


Each year, The Side-Out Foundation, the AVCA and the volleyball community team together to fund stage IV breast cancer research, demonstrate the power of teamwork, and show support for people with the disease through Dig Pink® initiatives. This research is solely funded by our sport, and WE ARE MAKING A REAL IMPACT. No other sport is doing what we’re doing, and it’s all because of volleyball!
