Our volley for a cure game was to raise awareness for breast cancer and also donations. We work with the Side-Out Foundation; from their website “In volleyball, “side-out” means regaining control of the ball.
The Side-Out Foundation helps people with breast cancer regain control of their lives – and we started our fundraising efforts through the sport of volleyball. Our Executive Director and Founder, Rick Dunetz, was a high school volleyball coach when his mother, Gloria, was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. Together he and his father, Bryant, decided to tell her story, and the story of all those with metastatic breast cancer, through dedicated volleyball matches across the U.S., where communities would rally and fundraise to support breast cancer research. This is how Dig Pink was born – and it is still a central program of The Side-Out Foundation.
We have 10 athletes on Varsity and 15 on JV that were involved in this match. We continue to raise funds from cash donations from the match as well as our website: Sleepy Hollow Volleyball Dig Pink Donation Page.
