Side-Out’s Midwest region director, Tim Anderson, is excited to grow support for the organization in his home state: “In 2011, volleyball teams in Nebraska raised $24,500, an increase of $13,600 from the previous year! I’m proud to live in a community where athletes are committed not only to their sport, but also to making a difference in the lives of those around them.”
