The Beat Breast Cancer Mud Volleyball Tournament provides a one-of-a-kind, memorable experience.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Pink Bandana, Inc. is back at it again with another Beat Breast Cancer Mud Volleyball Tournament on Saturday, July 10, 2021. The event, in it’s 12th year, was cancelled last summer due to restrictions and concerns related to COVID-19. With slight modifications to this year’s event, the organization is excited to announce the 2021 recipient, event details, and registration date.

The Beat Breast Cancer Mud Volleyball Tournament provides a one-of-a-kind, memorable experience. Teams spend the day battling each other on eight separate mud volleyball courts. A hair cutting event will also take place for individuals wishing to donate at least 8 inches of their hair. Event attendees can enjoy a concession stand available throughout the day and giant versions of favorite outdoor yard games.

Pink Bandana is a non-profit organization that raises support and awareness for women in Nebraska, age 40 and under, who are battling breast cancer.

Over the last 13 years, Pink Bandana has donated over $330,000 to families in need through the fundraising efforts of the tournament and other Pink Bandana events. Pink Bandana’s mission is to continually support families affected by breast cancer, both financially and emotionally.
