SFSC Volleyball Digs Pink
During the 2012 volleyball season, the South Florida State College Lady Panther volleyball team, along with thousands of volleyball teams across the country, continues its quest to raise breast cancer awareness by participating in the Side-Out Foundation’s Dig Pink initiative.
“We’ve all been touched by cancer,” said Kim Crawford, SFSC Women’s Volleyball coach. “For the past couple of years, Lady Panther Volleyball has raised funds for breast cancer awareness on its own, and we’ve raised $200-$250 a year. This is the second year we’ve worked with Dig Pink, and it’s helped us be able to get our community more involved and increase our fundraising goal to $1500.”
The team is holding two fundraising opportunities beginning Monday, Oct. 8. Supporters can pledge per kill, ace, block and dig a player makes during the Dig Pink game on Oct. 23, or be on the lookout for Lady Panther volleyball team members who will be carrying a pink moneyball around the SFSC campus and help the team fill it up. Donations can also be made by visiting the Lady Panthers’ Dig Pink website https://www.side-out.org/cb/ous/fundraising_page/45412. The Lady Panthers Dig Pink volleyball game will be held Tuesday, Oct. 23, 7 p.m., versus Indian River State College.
The Side-Out Foundation is a support and advocacy organization dedicated to making a significant and identifiable difference in the lives of breast cancer patients and their families by supporting clinical trials, increasing compassionate support services and educating communities.
