The Side-Out Foundation started Dig Pink as a way to raise awareness about breast cancer.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the Culver City High School Girls Volleyball team designated one week in October to fundraise and spread awareness through the national Dig Pink movement. This year, Dig Pink was from October 4-8 in CCHS and consisted of two home volleyball games. With limited capacity in the gym due to COVID-19, Dig Pink was extended to one full week with two games, instead of just one day as per usual. This way everyone could show their support and stay safe during the games. 

The team donates to The Side-Out Foundation, an organization that specializes in raising awareness for late stage breast cancer and hosts Dig Pink. By selling pins and collecting change, the team was able to raise money for the cause, while raising awareness to the foundation. CCHS Dig Pink Committee member, Brooke Bottger, said, “It was interesting how we got to do two home games, and had a full week instead of one day.” 

It wasn’t only the volleyball team that was representing the cause, however, as the baseball team came out to support Tuesday’s game against Palos Verdes. The Girls Basketball team and Softball teams also wore their Breast Cancer Awareness shirts to Thursday’s game against Redondo Union High School. Unfortunately, Culver lost both of the games, but played hard and kept fighting until the end. Dig Pink is a way for the Volleyball team and Culver City High School to show love to the cause, and create more awareness in the community.
