Cancer Awareness Dig Pink Tour

The Side-Out foundation is in its 6th year of existence as a non-profit 501c (3) organization.  Our mission is to unify all levels of volleyball to put the power of our numbers together to Make a Significant and Identifiable Difference in the fight against breast cancer.

Last January the Side-Out Foundation a started a USAV Junior Club initiative called the Dig Pink Tour.  Tour Stops took us to Regional and National Qualifiers in four states and the District of Columbia.  Two Hundred seventy three club teams did a tremendous job spreading awareness and raising more then $183,000.

In 2010, we are working to double our outreach efforts to involve more club programs and teams. Our Tour challenge is to raise one million dollars while educating one person for every dollar raised.  Awareness was the focus for the Dig Pink October RallyEducation is the focus for the Tour.

We are reaching out to all of the USAV Regions in an effort to let you know what we are doing in our sport to fight Breast Cancer.  We want to include you in this experience and for your Region to be a part of the Tour Initiative.  We welcome your support and hope you will help us reach our ultimate goal of "Pinking Out" one day of all of the Junior Tournaments in 2010.  

Club teams in your region can get more information about the Tour by going to the Dig Pink Tour website and filling out the form.  All age groups and skill levels are welcome to participate.  We have tentative Tour Stops listed on our web page and each of these will have a "Pink Out" Day (usually the 2nd day of competition) in which players, coaches, fans and sometimes officials wear pink to show their support for the cause.   

Help us show the world what our sport can do if we all join together.  The Side-Out Foundation contributes funds for research and is committed to educate a million people in the process. 

Thank you very much for your time and Happy New Year!
