Volleyball Digs Pink to Fight Breast Cancer

Tuesday, October 05, 2010
Arlington, Va. - Marymount University’s volleyball team will once again be taking part in the Side-Out Foundation and Dig Pink campaign with its Capital Athletic Conference match against visiting Hood on Wednesday. Fans are encouraged to wear pink to the 7 p.m. match.

Dig Pink is the name of the breast cancer awareness rally that takes place in gyms all over the country during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. High School and college volleyball teams from all over the nation participate in the month-long event to raise awareness and knowledge about the disease. The goal for the initiative is to raise funds to go towards research and “living with cancer” organizations.

The Saints are excited to be a part of the Side-Out Foundation and Dig Pink campaign. Education is key to increasing awareness and knowledge about the disease. Like many of you, our team has been personally affected by breast cancer and we invite you to help our loved ones and yours fight the fight against this disease.
