OUR PROGRAMS

Dig Pink Logo

In its 11th year, Dig Pink® was as strong as ever, with over 730 volleyball teams hosting impactful and inspiring events all around the country, and some even overseas! During the 2019 season, we were able to travel to different places, meet teams that have been by our side for years and learn about the unique ways that they incorporate Dig Pink into their schools and communities. We continue to be amazed by the passion our supporting teams have for the cause and look forward to the growth of the Dig Pink movement moving forward!

CAMPAIGNS RAISED OVER $2000

Every year, Side-Out recognizes schools, clubs, and events for their Dig Pink efforts by celebrating them on the “Wall of Heroes.” For 2021, teams that raise more than $2,000 will receive a banner to proudly display in their offices or gyms.

Why $2,000? Everyone’s cancer is different – their treatment should reflect this. $2,000 provides one metastatic breast cancer patient with a personalized analysis unique to them. This analysis yields treatment solutions and clinical trials that can substantially improve the length and quality of their life. Given this significant connection, Side-Out is offering 2022 Dig Pink participants the opportunity to accept the 1:1 Challenge, challenging teams and individual players to raise a minimum of $2,000 each.

AMBASSADOR PROGRAM

2019 Side-Out Foundation Ambassadors Collage

The Side-Out Ambassador Program presents opportunities for students to receive recognition and scholarship funds, encouraging them to continue a life of setting and achieving their goals. Ambassadors raise funds for breast cancer research through Dig Pink® while learning important lessons about health, community, and perseverance.

To be a Side-Out Ambassador, students must have organized a Dig Pink campaign, completed breast cancer education hours and an event plan, and wrote a 500-750 word essay about the experience, and have a sponsor write a letter of recommendation.

In 2019, Side-Out had 12 incredible Ambassador Program applications from students around the United States and South Korea. This year, we introduced the Event Plan that the applicants had to submit with their application to showcase the different tasks they took on in the areas of marketing, communications, and fundraising. The efforts of this group helped create memorable experiences for their communities and we were able to see new and innovative ways ambassadors are implementing Dig Pink.

Out of the 12 Ambassadors, 9 were awarded scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,500. The Ambassadors with the top-three highest-scoring essays were honored with the National Dig Pink Award at the AVCA Convention in Pittsburgh, PA.
