CORVALLIS, Ore. – When the Oregon State volleyball team battles Utah on Friday night at Gill Coliseum, the Beavers will also be taking on another opponent: cancer.

Friday night is Oregon State’s annual “Spike Out Cancer” event to help battle the disease. Fans are encouraged to wear pink to the match, which begins at 6 p.m. PT and can also be seen on the Pac-12 Networks. The team will be wearing pink uniforms.

Pink “Dam Cancer” t-shirts will be sold at the door for $15 and will gain the wearer free entrance into the match as well as other pink events for other sports, except football. Want to purchase yours before arriving to Gill Coliseum? You can buy them online through Beaver Authentics at osubeaversshop.com.

A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the pink shirts will go to the Corvallis Clinic and Project H.E.R. to help local breast cancer patients.

Local survivors will also be honored between sets two and three.

The Spike Out Cancer match is one of many pink events Oregon State puts on throughout the year. Over the past weekend, the women’s soccer hosted a pink match, and at the football game on Oct. 26, the first 10,000 fans through Reser Stadium’s gates will receive pink pom poms. Fans who wish to purchase a “Dam Cancer” may also do so at the Stanford game but the shirts will not gain free admittance.
