The start of October doesn’t just mean getting ready for Halloween, it also means the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In honor of this, Brashier’s volleyball team has started their annual fundraiser, Dig Pink, with many sales and activities available for students to get involved with to help the team raise money.

“We are having our pink out, and there’s our big game… pep rallies, we’re having a co-ed volleyball tournament, and a bake sale,” says Junior Skylar Brown, a member of the volleyball team.

In past years, the volleyball team only had pep rallies as a way to celebrate their season, however, now, they use them as a way to help raise money, as well as awareness. This is something that hits close to home for some, especially the team, as the old athletic director was diagnosed with breast cancer.

“I want [people] to keep in mind that this is a disease and a problem that impacts so many people,” says Junior volleyball player Blake Roth.

Dig Pink is a nationwide fundraiser that different schools and volleyball teams participate in. All the money raised goes to the Side-out foundation, where 82% of its income goes to stage four breast cancer research. The Lady Bengals are excited to help the cause, and everyone is excited to see how much they’re able to donate to the foundation.

“This year our goal is five thousand dollars. I’m really hoping we go over because we’ve done a lot better with marketing this year, but our goal is five thousand,” says volleyball coach Haleigh Horgan.

Even if students are unable to join in on all of the activities, they are still encouraged to support the team at their pep rallies and games. The team hopes that everyone who is able to attend their upcoming games will be there, especially their Pink Out game next week.

“The volleyball team would really like everyone’s support and participation,” says Brown.
