Dig Pink @ Casady School

Senior Myria D. facilitated the Dig Pink Volleyball Team Project at Casady Upper Division this year.  Myria had a couple of chapel speeches promoting the event and the sale of t-shirts.

The goal of the Side Out Foundation http://www.side-out.org/ is to raise $ 2 million for breast cancer research uniting volleyball teams across the nation.  The project was an original idea of Coach Jim Bonfiglio who added a community connection to the Holland Hall vs Casady volleyball competitions. Mr. Steve Shelley, Casady's Athletic Director is the current faculty liaison of this project at Casady.  shelleys@casady.org.

The objectives of the Dig Pink Casady project were to unite faculty and students in a volleyball game to have fun together while tackling the serious business of raising awareness and funding of breast cancer.

The activities the Volleyball team promoted on campus were
1. Sale of t-shirts especially designed for the occasion
2. Bake sale before the game
3. A game between Varsity Volleyball and Faculty.
