Fairfax, VA (October 1, 2014) — The Side-Out Foundation is pleased to announce its newest sponsor, All Volleyball, Inc. Throughout the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), All Volleyball, Inc. will host a social media campaign to benefit Side-Out (1 new follower on their social media pages=$1 donated!), and they will also donate 5% of all sales from the women’s and men’s categories of their Pink Pride program.
Rick Dunetz, executive director of The Side-Out Foundation, is excited about the sponsorship: “All Volleyball is a well-known, well respected organization, and we are honored that they chose to support The Side-Out Foundation for their October campaign. We share a love for volleyball and a commitment to serve our communities, and we look forward to working with them.”
Wayne and Kriss Lawson, owners of All Volleyball, Inc. are encouraged by the generosity of the volleyball community and look forward to supporting an organization that means so much to players and their families: “As the founders and staff of The Side-out Foundation can attest to, the volleyball community is a unique group of individuals with like spirit. They are energetic, honest, helpful, trustworthy, smart, ambitious, genuine, competitive, and extremely close knit. It’s no wonder that the Dig Pink Rally has attracted so many participants. As founders of All Volleyball, we’ve been witness to the spirit of this volleyball community for many years. We feel that our partnership with The Side-Out Foundation will give us an opportunity to support this cause alongside our fellow volleyball enthusiast.”
Funds from All Volleyball, Inc.’s initiatives will benefit The Side-Out Foundation starting Wednesday, October 1st and will continue throughout the month of October.

About The Side-Out Foundation
The Side-Out Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was established in 2004. Inspired by one mom and embraced by the entire sport of volleyball, the mission of The Side-Out Foundation is to educate young athletes and their communities about breast cancer, both with respect to prevention and treatment, and to fund cutting edge breast cancer research. Side-Out is focused on changing the way breast cancer is treated forever.
The term side-out refers to a situation in volleyball when one team wins a point while its opponent is serving, thereby regaining serve or control of play. It is hoped that Side-Out will do the same for breast cancer patients, providing them with the support, education and best available treatments to regain control of their lives.
