Dig Pink® Tour

Club teams across the nation are showing their support for cancer patients and research this season. The Dig Pink® Tour is part of a national movement that is activating the power and teamwork of the volleyball community to beat cancer. We invite you and your team to help by creating cards and raising funds for research, and wearing pink on day 2 of tournaments.

“As a coach, I have seen first-hand the incredible value of engaging players in events such as these—to build bonds and encourage teamwork. This club season is a great opportunity to show your concern for the whole player by connecting with The Side-Out Foundation’s Dig Pink® Tour.”
Rick Dunetz

Here is how to be part of the Dig Pink Tour…
