Dig Pink fundraising events for the Side-Out Foundation have become a staple of the volleyball community and in 2016 Connecticut High Schools ranked among the leaders in money earned towards cancer research.
Connecticut high schools raised a total of $31,372 for the year, which ranked 10th in the nation for high school programs. It’s an impressive total and one the athletes and schools should be proud of. In total, with the efforts of Connecticut High Schools, more than $1.1 million was raised in 2016 for the non-profit organization that raises money for stage IV breast cancer research through the sport of volleyball. In addition, nine students were recognized with scholarship awards through the Side-Out Ambassador Program, one of which was a Connecticut volleyball performer.
This is a tribute to the great work of Connecticut high school volleyball programs, and hopefully the efforts will continue to grow in the future. Find out more information at Side-Out.org.
