Dig Pink®

Learn the value and importance of giving back to the community, working as a team, and taking initiative to get involved.

What is Dig Pink®?

Schools, tournaments, and clubs unite their communities by hosting events that create impactful experiences and build positive team culture, all while fundraising for Side-Out’s stage IV breast cancer research.

Designed to educate and empower young athletes, Dig Pink teaches the value and importance of giving back to the community, working as a team, and taking the initiative to get involved.

You don’t have to be a volleyball team or student-athlete to be a part of the Dig Pink movement.

A few ways to show your support include dedicating your birthday, asking for donations instead of wedding gifts, or having a pancake breakfast or spaghetti dinner! Get creative!

How to Participate

Host a Dig Pink match or tournament and get your community involved.


The Dig-A-Thon runs from January through June uniting volleyball teams to honor the 150,000 individuals living with stage IV breast cancer in the U.S.
