Vacaville, CA, This fall 2012, thousands of teams from around the country will participate in the Dig Pink National Breast Cancer Awareness Rally.  High School and College volleyball teams will promote breast health education in the community as well as raising funds to help eradicate Breast Cancer.

On October 8th, 2012 Will C. Wood Volleyball invites all students, parents, fans and cancer survivors to attend our match against Napa, wear pink and join in on the fun while we strive to do something significant and identifiable in the fight against breast cancer.

Dig Pink attendees will watch the players compete on the court while contributing to breast health awareness by making a statement and wearing something PINK in the stands. We will be accepting a nominal donation for entry with all proceeds going to the Side-Out Foundation.  We will acknowledge breast cancer survivors during our rally, and they will attend for free.  Dig Pink event t-shirts will be sold on campus prior to the event by the WCW AVID Club and Lady Wildcat Volleyball team  – and during the rally until supplies last.  WCW Link Crew, Student Government and other student groups will lend a hand to “pink-out” the campus and gym.  We will also sell pink necklaces, ribbons and pink snacks during the match.  The entire school stands behind this cause!

Side-Out Foundation
The proceeds from all donations will benefit the Side-Out Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) located in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area.  They have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Breast Cancer research nationally through volleyball tournaments, clinics, and rallies.  Funds are currently devoted to targeted therapies and molecular profiling which is where there is a hot bed of research activity.  Side-Out also devotes a portion of the funds to local and national “Life with Cancer” support organizations.

Their name underscores the purpose of the organization – “Side-Out” in volleyball occurs when one team wins a point while its opponent is serving, thereby regaining serve or control of play. Likewise in the war against breast cancer, the Side-Out Foundation will support health care professionals in their pursuit of practical solutions for women and men with this dreaded disease thus enabling those affected to regain control of their lives and living them to the fullest.
