This year Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) is calling on sporting groups – clubs, leagues and associations – to pink up for Pink Sports Day.
We encourage all clubs and teams to join hundreds of sporting groups nationwide as they turn pink to show their support for and pay tribute to, people in their community affected by breast cancer.
BCNA CEO Christine Nolan said there are many ways to get involved and hold a Pink Sports Day, from a BBQ or cake stall at the local club house, holding a raffle or simply purchasing pink socks or shoelaces for team members to wear on the day.
“Pink Sports Day is a wonderful event that inspires great community participation and spirit, while raising awareness and vital funds for BCNA. We really encourage all sporting clubs to get involved, no matter how big or small that involvement may be” Christine said.
Last year more than 1200 clubs across Australia took part to show their support for Australians affected by breast cancer.
All money raised through Pink Sports Day will go directly to BCNA to help ensure Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.
Members of the community are encouraged to ‘pink up’ and come down to cheer on their local teams as they play in support of those affected by breast cancer.
Registration is free and easy, but also essential to take part. We encourage all sporting groups to register and get involved in this fun day for a great cause. Upon registering, BCNA will send clubs a free event pack with everything they need to run and promote their event.
This year we want to raise $500,000 for Australian women, men and families through the Pink Sports Day program, will you help us get there?
