Dig Pink Success

Bosque School's girls volleyball teams hosted a Dig Pink game on Thursday, October 21, and in front of a packed house with a very excited and very pink student section, both Bosque School teams not only came away with wins on the court, but with a big win for the Side-Out Foundation

The Side-Out Foundation is a national program that raises funds for breast cancer research, awareness and education. According to their website, in volleyball, a player calls “side-out” when they want to regain control of the ball, and the goal of the Side-Out Foundation is to help breast cancer patients regain control of their lives. This year, Bosque School helped bring them a little closer to that goal by raising $1,000 through their Dig Pink games. 

Side-Out has worked for more than 10 years to create a community of more than 9,000 volleyball teams, and during that time, those teams have raised more than $15 million through Dig Pink for metastatic breast cancer clinical trials. The foundation strives to create life-long advocates who will work toward improving and lengthening the lives of those living with advanced metastatic breast cancer, and their hope is to ultimately transform the way breast cancer is treated.

Senior volleyball members made a statement to the crowd before the game, “Together, we all can make a difference in the fight against cancer, not just in October, and not just by wearing pink, but by funding research, education, and community outreach and awareness.”

Thank you to everyone who helped make our Dig Pink game a success by supporting our teams and the great cause!
