HOUSTON – The Rice Owls volleyball squad raised a record $3,553 in their fifth annual Dig Pink match, teaming up with the Side-Out Foundation to raise awareness and funding for breast cancer.
“Rice volleyball is always proud to be a part of the Side-Out Foundation and Dig Pink,” Rice head coach Genny Volpe said. “A lot of credit has to go to current members of our volleyball team that put forth the effort to market the event and get the funds raised. The last two years it was Laurie McNamara and this year it was Tyler Jenkins. We want to give a big thanks to our marketing office and tickets office as well, for all they did to help make it a successful event. We hope to continue this tradition in the future and raise even more money for such a worthy cause.”
Rice’s dedicated Dig Pink match was vs. Charlotte on Oct. 13, which the Owls won 3-0. Over the past five years, the Owls have raised over $8,000 participating in Dig Pink. To donate to the Rice's Dig Pink page click here.
The Rice volleyball team is helping to fund the clinical trial for Stage 4 breast cancer patients. The patients are at the point where standard treatment is no longer helping them. The Side-Out Protocol treatment research is focused on treating patients with Stage 4 breast cancer or metastatic cancer, an incurable form of the disease and the least funded area of research.
Donations received go to the Side-Out Foundation, which in turn awards grants to medical research organizations and entities dedicated to providing compassionate support to breast cancer patients and their families.
