It’s that time of year again… time to start planning for your 2016 Dig Pink® Rally!  If you’ve done this before, you know what a breeze it is to plan and execute your rally match.  If you haven’t done a Dig Pink® match with us before, worry not!  Here’s the basic steps to start planning your event this year:

So, what is a Dig Pink Rally?

The Dig Pink® Rally is The Side-Out Foundation’s fall event that brings together volleyball players across the nation to raise funds for breast cancer research, demonstrate the power of teamwork, and show support for people with the disease. Money raised through Dig Pink® supports Side-Out’s game-changing cancer research and programs to develop the whole player.

Dig Pink® events can be organized at the local, county, city or state level. Although Side-Out’s Dig Pink® events began as volleyball specific events, participants do not have to be volleyball players/coaches or even athletes at all. The events are supported by middle/high school and college students nationwide.

How do I get started?

Getting started is simple with 5 easy steps!  

  1. Click here to create a Side-Out account and campaign page.
  2. Set a date for your match and obtain the support of the visiting team.
  3. Communicate your intent to the school’s activities/athletic director.
  4. Set a fundraising goal.
  5. Brainstorm fundraising ideas!  Or click here to see some of our suggestions!

The ambassador program is open to all middle, high school and college-aged students who are focused on uniting their communities, inspiring those around them and fundraising for The Side-Out Foundation’s initiatives.
