Students, faculty and staff engaged in a series of events throughout the month of October including pink dress down, bake sales, ribbon sales, t-shirt sales and the Dig Pink Volleyball Game on October 17th against Nazareth. On October 18th the students defeated the faculty in the return of the Students vs. Faculty Volleyball game.
St. Edmund Prep's relationship with the Side Out Foundation, a nonprofit breast cancer charity organization, to raise funds for breast cancer research began in 2016. Each year, a member of the girls’ varsity volleyball squad has served as the Dig Pink Ambassador, coordinating the monthlong activities. This year’s Dig Pink Ambassador was Anna Morris '23
Anna was selected as Dig Pink Ambassador in the spring of her junior year. She soon got to work, with her first task being to conduct extensive research on breast cancer and ways to fundraise to support the cause.
“My teammates and I did lots of research on breast cancer,” she said. “We found on-line that breast cancer is one of the most common cancers for women, and there is the least amount of research that goes into it. We made this announcement to the school, saying the money we raised could help out the cause so much.”
Congratulations to Anna, the team and the entire St. Edmund Prep community for their support of work of the The Side-Out Foundation, those battling breast cancer and the research efforts in finding a cure.
