Corvallis, Ore. – The Oregon State football and volleyball programs will compete against each other in the second annual “Digging for Dylan” on Saturday, Apr. 9 at 5:00 p.m. All of the proceeds from “Digging for Dylan” will go to the Sparrow Clubs.

Last year, over $1,700 was raised to help offset the medical costs for Dylan Cain and his parents, Mark and Jinger. The family traveled to Duke Children’s Hospital and Clinic in North Carolina last year, where Dylan received an infusion of stem cells harvested from his banked umbilical cord blood that was saved from birth.
