Tiger Volleyball To Hold “Dig For The Cure” Night On October 26

Oct. 17, 2007

CLEMSON, SC – The Clemson volleyball team will hold its second annual “Dig For The Cure” night to benefit the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation as part of its Oct. 26 match against North Carolina. Fans or businesses can pledge money per dig recorded by Clemson in the match, or they can make a flat donation. The money raised goes directly to the Upstate South Carolina Chapter of the Komen Foundation. The team will be accepting donations and pledges during home contests this weekend.

Clemson is one of numerous schools across the nation that will participate in this year’s event in an effort to help prevent and raise awareness for breast cancer through research, education, screening, and treatment made possible by their donations.

For information about the event or to make a pledge or donation, call the Clemson Athletic Office at (864) 656-3183 or email Mark Welch at

Last year, the Tigers raised $2,038.75 for their 41 digs in a 3-0 win over Wake Forest.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. Today, the Foundation is an international organization with a network of more than 75,000 volunteers working through local affiliates and events like the Komen Race for the Cure® to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease. A global leader in the fight against breast cancer, the Foundation fulfills its mission through support of innovative breast cancer research grants, meritorious awards and educational, scientific and community outreach programs around the world. Together with its Affiliate Network, corporate partners and generous donors, the Komen Foundation has raised more than $740 million for the fight against breast cancer.
