Dig Pink Match Set for Thursday Against Furman
The Eagles, partnering with the Side-Out Foundation for Dig Pink, join over 1,000 schools nationwide including 236 colleges and eight other conference schools supporting the cause.
All proceeds from Thursday’s match will be donated to the Side-Out Foundation, which in turn awards grants to medical research organizations and entities dedicated to providing compassionate support to breast cancer patients and their families.
In conjunction with the event, the Georgia Southern Volleyball team will be at the Russell Union on campus Wednesday and Thursday from noon to 1 p.m. selling pink Georgia Southern Volleyball t-shirts. The t-shirts are $13 and can also be purchased during the match on Thursday. Fans are asked to sport pink to the event to show their support for breast cancer.
