LA volleyball hosts Dig Pink event Thursday

The varsity and JV girls volleyball teams from Los Altos and Palo Alto highs have teamed up for a Dig Pink Rally – intended to promote breast cancer awareness and raise money for research and compassionate support projects – during their league matches scheduled Thursday at Los Altos.

The JV match is set for 5:30 p.m. and the varsity match at 6:45 p.m. Admission is free.

More than 1,500 high school, college and middle-school teams throughout the country are slated to participate in a Dig Pink Rally in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The nonprofit Side-Out Foundation, established in 2004 to raise money and awareness about cancer through volleyball, initiated the rallies.

Fans attending the rally can show their support by wearing pink to make it a “pink out” and donate money to the cause at the match or online at sideout.org/cb/campaigns/campaign/6811.
