This fall, thousands of teams from around the country will be participating in The Side-Out Foundation’s Dig Pink® National Breast Cancer Awareness Rally.  Middle school, high school and college teams will promote breast health education in the community as well as raise funds to further research.

Dig Pink events give spectators the opportunity to become involved by making donations to the cause and by pinking out the events (i.e. donning pink to show their support).  Admission will be $5.00.  Survivors will get in free.  Dig Pink event t-shirts will be sold in the Big gym.  There will be black and pink T-shirts for sale. The black T-shirts will be $5.00, while the pink T-shirts will be $10.00.

There will be 2 matches held simultaneously at 9:00 a.m. (JH Rose vs. DH Conley in Big gym; Rocky Mount HS vs. South Central HS in Small gym) and 11:00 a.m. (JH Rose vs. Rocky Mount HS in small gym; Hoggard vs. South Central HS in Big gym), while there will only be 1 match at 1:00 p.m.(Hoggard vs. DH Conley).  Before the 11:00 a.m. matches, survivors in attendance will be recognized in the Big gym area. Concessions and raffle items will be sold in the Big gym area throughout the entirety of the tournament.

The proceeds from this tournament will benefit the Side-Out Foundation, a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.
