Dig Pink event honors those fighting cancer

This year the Moriarty High School Pinto volleyball program will host its 10th annual Dig Pink volleyball game. It is a longstanding tradition for MHS volleyball where breast cancer survivors are honored, including varsity coach Kim Bell.

Those who lost their fight are remembered, and the continued fight against all types of cancer is recognized. Dig Pink is a service project that high school volleyball teams participate in nationwide. This event teaches our young athletes the benefits of community service and that they can make a difference for a cause.

All volleyball players have been selling T-shirts with proceeds going to the Side-out Foundation which raises money for breast cancer research. For the event, the green and white Pinto colors are set aside, with the gym showered in pink for one afternoon.

The ceremony is moving and touches all those who witness it deeply. This year’s Dig Pink game is on Saturday, Oct. 28, with the C-Team game starting at 4, Junior Varsity at 5 and Varsity at 6 p.m. The survivor ceremony is between the JV and varsity games.
