PHILADELPHIA Penn will participate in the national Dig Pink campaign for breast cancer awareness when the Quakers host Dartmouth October 24 in The Palestra.
Dig Pink is a country-wide campaign to raise money for breast cancer research sponsored by the Side-Out Foundation, national 501(c)(3) located in the Washington DC Metropolitan Area. Throughout the course of its existence, the foundation has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for Breast Cancer research nationally through volleyball tournaments, clinics and rallies.
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.
