Although fundraising isn’t the only goal of Side-Out’s Dig Pink® initiatives, it is always amazing to witness what participants are able to accomplish. We are so touched by the generosity of each of our teams, but these five earned special recognition for their accomplishments.

For their 2014 Dig Pink® games, Sports Imports is loaning Stanley High School, The John Cooper School, Downey High School and Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart pink safety pads and net tape. Naperville Central High School will receive its own set of safety pads and net tape to keep!

Thank you to everyone who made the 2013 Rally a success. We can’t wait to kick off the 2014 Dig Pink® Rally!
