Dig Pink Volleyball - October 22nd

As many of you may know, over the past several years Dig Pink has become the annual community-service project of the Moriarty High School Volleyball Program.  Dig Pink is the name of the Breast Cancer Awareness Rally that takes place in gymnasiums all over the country during Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October).  The goal for this initiative is to raise funds to go towards cancer research and “living with cancer” organizations.  Our Dig Pink fundraising event is organized by the MHS Lady Pintos, volunteers, coaches, and family members.  It supports the Side-Out Foundation and honors our friends in the “Circle of Survivors” - close friends and family members in the community, affected by the adversity of all kinds of cancers.  This event also raises cancer awareness to the young women in our volleyball programs and stresses the importance of giving back to our community.


The highlight of the Dig Pink fundraising campaign is the Dig Pink Volleyball Match, which will be held this year on Saturday, October 22nd with the first match beginning at 1:00pm.  If you have never been to a Dig Pink match, you just don’t know what you’re missing!  Those that have attended over the years will tell you that it is a sight to see and a touching experience you won’t soon forget!  On October 22nd, you will find that the town has been “painted pink” and the gym is transformed into an ocean of pink as well.  But that is just the beginning!  The volleyball matches that day are dedicated to our community members that have been affected by cancer, and many of them will be in attendance for a tribute to our “Circle of Survivors” as honored guests.  This tribute ceremony is such a special gift to our community and the significance of it is certainly not lost on the young ladies escorting their guests onto the volleyball court.  The experience will leave you speechless!


We would like to cordially invite the staffs of each school campus to join us in coming together as a community!  There are a couple of ways that the staff at your school campus can help us PAINT THE TOWN PINK AND SUPPORT THE CAUSE!

  • Purchase Dig Pink T-Shirts ($10 each).  All of the MHS Volleyball players are taking T-shirt orders until October 15th.  If you know a Lady Pinto volleyball player, you can place your order with her.  Or you can print the T-Shirt Order Form, complete it, and send it with your payment to Linda Apodaca in the MHS Athletics Office through interoffice mail.  Proceeds from T-shirt sales benefit the Side-Out Foundation.

  • Get in the spirit with a rowdy group of staff members to attend the Dig Pink Volleyball Match on Saturday, October 22nd as a group.  Wear your Dig Pink shirts, make posters, and cheer on the Lady Pintos from your own fan section!  As mentioned above, it will be a special experience for you and it will mean the world to our volleyball teams to have your support!
