The tournament will be a two court set up with junior varsity and varsity participating.
All proceeds from the gate will go to the Side-Out Foundation for cancer research. Northview is also selling shirts for the event and all those proceeds will also be donated to the Side-Out Foundation. The schools will also host a hospitality room for survivors, referees, and coaches. Survivors present at the game will get in free and receive a special treat from the volleyball players.
The Side-Out Foundation funds breast cancer research and support with “cutting-edge clinical trials at renowned medical institutions. . . which has extended the lives of people with Stage 4 breast cancer.” In addition to cancer research, the Side-Out Foundation also provides support services for cancer patients and their families.
