About the Dig Pink fundraiser
Dig Pink® Rally is The Side-Out Foundation's trademark name for its fundraising events. A Dig Pink event can be organized at the local, county, city or state level. Although Side-Out's Dig Pink events began as volleyball specific events, participants do not have to be volleyball players/coaches or even athletes at all! The events are supported by middle/high school and college students nationwide. All proceeds benefit Side-Out, which in turn awards grants to medical research organizations and entities dedicated to providing compassionate support to breast cancer patients and their families. Your participation gives youths the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of all breast cancer patients.
