Pink Sports Day

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

SPORT­ING groups are in­vited to “pink up” for Breast Can­cer Net­work Australia’s an­nual Pink Sports Day over the Mother’s Day week­end of May 9–10.

Pink Sports Day is an op­por­tu­nity for sport­ing groups and their com­mu­ni­ties to come to­gether and show sup­port for peo­ple in their lo­cal area who have been af­fected by breast can­cer.

Last year more than 900 clubs across Australia raised $450,000 to sup­port Aus­tralians af­fected by breast can­cer. This year the goal is $600,000.

Natalie Med­hurst, world cham­pion and Com­mon­wealth Games gold medal-win­ning Aus­tralian net­baller and Pink Sports Day Am­bas­sador, has en­cour­aged in­volve­ment.

“It’s im­por­tant we make sure women af­fected by breast can­cer and their fam­i­lies know that there are peo­ple there to sup­port them,” she said.

It’s free to par­tic­i­pate, and BCNA will pro­vide a free event pack with ev­ery­thing needed to run and pro­mote the event.
