WINTER PARK, Fla. (October 24, 2019) - For the fourth consecutive year, the Rollins College women's volleyball team will host a "Dig Pink" game in cooperation with the Sideout Foundation. The 2019 edition will take place on Tuesday, October 29th as the Tars host the Florida Tech Panthers at 7 pm.
The Sideout Foundation has raised hundreds of thousands for dollars for research, specifically aimed at patients with Stage IV breast cancer. Stage IV is the most advanced form of the disease, and is also the least funded area of research, according to the Foundation's website. Hundreds of volleyball teams from all levels, from middle school to college, participate in the fundraising effort each year. Rollins volleyball has held a Dig Pink game each year since head coach Mika Robinson took over the program in 2016.
Fans are encouraged to wear pink to the game to show their support of those fighting breast cancer. The team will be collecting donations at the door. Anyone who cannot attend the game in person can still help out by making an online donation, or by bidding on a custom pink Rollins volleyball jersey. Last year, Rollins was one of eleven Division II volleyball teams to raise more than $1,000 during their Dig Pink initiative.
