The Madeira School volleyball program (9-0 regular season record) will host its second annual Dig Pink match against Georgetown Visitation this Friday, October 21, 2016, at 4:15 pm for Junior Varsity and 5:15 pm for Varsity. Everyone in attendance at the matches is asked to wear pink to show their support for the fight against breast cancer.
The Dig Pink Rally is The Side-Out Foundation’s October 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.
The Snails began the Dig Pink tradition of giving back last year, and were able to help raise close to $1000 for the cause. The program hopes to raise over $1500 in their 2016 campaign this Friday.
“Many members of our communities have been impacted by breast cancer in some way or another, and we feel privileged to do our part to help support the fight,” said head volleyball coach and assistant athletic director, Kelly Picardi. “Our team really enjoys the opportunity to give back through the Dig Pink event each year. They see the chance to be a part of something bigger than themselves, and do a great job helping to raise awareness and support for this worthy cause. I could not be more proud of their efforts, both on and off the court.”
