The Side-Out Foundation was established in 2004 to unite volleyball players and coaches and to have them work toward the common goal of furthering breast cancer awareness, education and patient services. The funds are contributed to
organizations that serve breast cancer patients, in the form of
research, medical services or compassionate support. The foundation's objectives in 2010 are to fund translational research, expand compassionate support and launch educational initiative.
