Through youth education and empowerment, The Side-Out Foundation unifies the volleyball community to drive change in the way that breast cancer is treated.
What We Do
Side-Out unites the volleyball community to impact change.
Each year, tens of thousands of volleyball players, coaches and families across the country join the growing Dig Pink® Movement. Together, they support the development of treatments that are giving stage IV breast cancer patients more quality time with their families and getting them closer to the day we find a cure.
Side-Out owns, funds, and manages game-changing breast cancer research, The Side-Out Protocol.
Through Side-Out’s programs, the volleyball community sponsors our clinical trials at renowned medical institutions across the country. The Side-Out Protocol uses a unique approach that is successfully extending the lives of those living with stage IV breast cancer.
Side-Out educates and empowers young athletes.
Dig Pink® and other Side-Out programs help participants develop skills such as teamwork, leadership and perseverance, giving them opportunities to live meaningful and impactful lives. Side-Out also invests in the future of young athletes by providing access to valuable breast cancer education and awarding college scholarships to Side-Out Ambassadors.
In its first 10 years, Side-Out’s Dig Pink Movement and its nearly 100,000 student-athlete participants have raised over one million dollars per year. Dig Pink is a movement that reaches all 50 states, Canada and overseas. With this tremendous support, Side-Out and the sport of volleyball are providing more quality time for those living with stage IV breast cancer through our game-changing clinical trials.
