Shakopee Girls Varsity Volleyball Team Digs Pink for October Breast Cancer Awareness Month and St. Francis Cancer Center
The Shakopee High School Girls Varsity Volleyball team raised over $1,900 at their annual October “Dig Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness night.
The girls started the fundraiser out of a larger group called “The Side-Out Foundation” that both high school and college volleyball programs participate in nation-wide.
Many on the team had friends and relatives that had battled breast cancer. They wanted to pay tribute to them by giving the donations to the St. Francis Regional Medical Center Cancer Center.
