The Office of Campus Activities at The University of Central Oklahoma
Big Pink Volleyball is a week long philanthropic volleyball tournament with one giant twist- it is played with a four foot pink volleyball. In the four years Central has hosted the tournament, $16,947.43 has been raised and donated to Susan G. Komen-Central and Western Oklahoma. These proceeds were able to go directly to women and men that are affected by breast cancer in the Central Oklahoma Area.
Besides planning the Big Pink Volleyball Tournament in February, the Big Pink Executive Committee hopes to spread awareness to the UCO community through education about Breast Cancer and its prevention and raise money through donations for Susan G. Komen-Central and Western Oklahoma.
