Los Alamos High School’s volleyball teams will be playing not only to win Wednesday Oct. 14, but to raise money for the Side-Out Foundation.
For anyone only able to make one game this year, Dig Pink is the one to come out for.
“The girls are really excited to participate in this year’s Dig Pink Rally,” Coach Sharleen Espinoza said. “As a program, we try to emphasize supporting one another and Dig Pink allows us to extend that support to a much larger community. We want people to know that Dig Pink is more than just wearing a pink shirt. This is a way for us all to give back and raise awareness about a cause that affects so many families.”
This year, each girl will take the court in honor, in memory, or in support of someone stricken by breast cancer. Throughout the three games, players on the freshman, JV and varsity squads will be taking donations in the stands and selling tickets for a 50/50 raffle.
Side-Out was founded in 2004 and teams with the volleyball community to inspire science and hope in the march against breast cancer. Tens of thousands of volleyball players, coaches and families across the country have joined together to raise funds for Side-Out by participating in various programs, including the foundation’s main initiative, Dig Pink.
