After the volleyball match, the first-ever Maureen Thompson Memorial Service Award was awarded at the conclusion of the girls varsity volleyball match. This is a national award going to a high school or collegiate volleyball player who excels on and off the court, the inaugural recipient was Molly Phillips, a right side hitter for the undefeated and #1 ranked UT women's volleyball team. Molly was an intern at Side-Out in the summer of 2022.
Dig Pink is a program of the Side-Out Foundation. For over ten years, Side-Out has researched what makes each tumor unique so they can improve cancer care for every individual MBC patient. Dig Pink is a volleyball event experience for coaches, athletes, parents, and communities. Once a year, volleyball players from high schools and colleges across the nation raise funds that allow Side-Out to fund individualized treatment plans for patients. “One day there will be a dollar that is invested in the research that advances the cure. The reason we fundraise is to be sure that we have that dollar,” said Gary Thompson, Board Chair of the Side-Out Foundation and St. Andrew's parent.
The leaders and contributing employees of the top three companies who raise the most funds will be announced and recognized at the conclusion of breast cancer awareness month on October 31, 2022. Sign your company up and follow the competition here: https://side-out.org/sasdigpink2022

I'm not only very serious about cancer, but I'm serious about winning. So, I fully expect that we will be number one on that list. And I challenge all business CEOs and managers to try to beat us.
