The Dig Pink® Rally is The Side-Out Foundation’s October event that brings together volleyball players across the nation to raise funds for breast cancer research, demonstrate the power of teamwork, and show support for people with the disease. Money raised through Dig Pink®supports Side-Out’s game-changing cancer research and programs to develop the whole player.


The Casady Girls Volleyball program is passionate about breast cancer awareness month, as the girls have family members and friends affected by breast cancer. 

The team held its yearly fundraiser called Pink Out at 6:30 on Wednesday, October 18th, at the Bennett Athletic Center. It was a fun volleyball game between the Varsity Team and their UD Faculty members. Senior Regan D. stated during a chapel announcement that the girls were raising funds by seeking donations, selling t-shirts, and hosting a bake sale. 

Their goal for donations online was to collect $2,500.  If you were not able to attend the game, please consider giving HERE. The link will be accessible until October 31, 2017.

Casady YAC is preparing to have its Annual Students Against Hunger, Casady Cans Do the week of October 30 to November 3rd.  The freshman team facilitating the drive has stated that their goal is to raise as much in funds and cans as Casady donated last year.  Memories of past food drives at Casady Students Against Hunger Blog
