St Mary’s Sporting Club to pink up for breast cancer support
St Mary’s Sporting Club will pink up for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA)’s annual Pink Sports Day on Mother’s Day weekend, 8, 9, 10 and 12 May 2015.
All of our Seniors – U14 football sides will wear pink socks. Our U12 -U9 will wear pink shoelaces and our netball senior through to Junior will all wear pink socks. Our teams will raise approximation $6,000 through their efforts this weekend. Get behind us and show your support by making a purchase or a donation during the weekend at the Clubrooms or you can make a donation online to this truly wonderful cause.
Pink Sports Day is an opportunity for sporting groups around Australia to show their support for, and pay tribute to, people in their local community who have been 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.
BCNA CEO, Christine Nolan said Pink Sports Day is a chance for sporting communities to raise awareness and support for local women affected by breast cancer.
“More than 15,000 women in Australia are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. These women – mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends – need to know that they are supported,” Christine said.
“By taking part in Pink Sports Day St Mary’s Sporting Club is helping to ensure their local women know that they are not alone in their breast cancer journey, whilst also raising awareness of the support services available.”
Jock Mc Mahon, Club President, St Mary’s Sporting Club urges the local community to get behind the St Mary’s Sporting Club this Pink Sports Day.
“Pink Sports Day is a great opportunity for the whole community to head down to our St Mary’s and support not just the teams competing on the day, but also to show support for locals affected by breast cancer,” Jock said.
“We hope that everyone will come together, pink up and get behind the teams as they play for a great cause!”
