What is Dig Pink?

Dig Pink® is The Side-Out Foundation’s trademark name for its fundraising events. A Dig Pink® event can be organized at the local, county, city or state level, and it is supported by college and middle/high school volleyball coaches and teams as well as club coaches and teams. All proceeds benefit Side-Out, which in turn awards grants to medical research organizations and entities dedicated to providing compassionate support to breast cancer patients and their families. Your participation gives the volleyball community the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of all breast cancer patients. Thank you for getting involved!

Dig Pink®


Dig Pink® athletes come together for one cause. Teams, schools, clubs and communities nationwide host Dig Pink® events to educate others about breast cancer and to raise funds to support the research that Side-Out sponsors. Together we are making a difference.

Join thousands of middle school, high school, college, and club volleyball teams nationwide and HOST A DIG PINK INITIATIVE!

Side-Out Ambassador Program

ambassador-program-logo-official.pngThe Side-Out Ambassador Program presents opportunities for students to receive recognition and scholarship funds, encouraging them to continue a life of setting and achieving their goals. Ambassadors raise funds for breast cancer research through a Dig Pink® event while learning important lessons about health, community and perseverance.

The ambassador program is open to high school juniors, seniors and college-aged students who are focused on uniting their communities, inspiring those around them and fundraising for The Side-Out Foundation. Participants do not have to play volleyball.

Those who do play volleyball are automatically eligible for one of three special awards. Together, Side-Out and the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) offer awards to Side-Out ambassadors who are also involved with the sport of volleyball. The Side-Out/AVCA National Dig Pink® Award is given to three ambassadors who demonstrate extraordinary commitment to the sport and to their community.
