HOT SHOTS: South River Volleyball Players Raise Awareness for Breast Cancer at ‘Dig Pink’ Event
It was an emotional night at South River‘s JV and Varsity Women’s home Volleyball games against Meade High School as players came together to honor family members and friends touched by breast cancer during a ‘Dig Pink’ event.
‘Dig Pink’ events help raise money for the Side Out Foundation, a national organization that unites volleyball players and coaches to further the awareness of breast cancer. South River’s JV and Varsity teams hold a Dig Pink event each October to help raise money for breast cancer research.
At Tuesday night’s event, players honored friends and family members touched by breast cancer by presenting them with pink carnations before the start of the game. In addition, the volleyball players sold t-shirts to raise money for the Dig Pink Foundation, wore pink jerseys and decorated the gym in pink to show their support for the cause.
South River Source photographer Hunter Messineo captured the players in action as they rallied together to help find a cure.
