Splash of pink to raise funds
Scorchers, Townsite Eagles senior and junior cricket clubs, Tambrey Primary School and Tom Price Senior High School are some of the local clubs and schools stepping up to the crease by adding a splash of pink to cricket pitches to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation this Pink Stumps Day.
Registrations are now open for clubs and schools to take part in Pink Stumps Day on February 18.
Ambassador and director Tracy Bevan said fundraising from the day would help ensure families affected by breast cancer had access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they lived or their financial situation.
“Pink Stumps Day is a great way to bring the magic of the Pink Test to your home town or suburb while having fun, showing off your cricket skills and raising money to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia,” she said.
McGrath Foundation president and for Test bowling great Glenn McGrath said he was grateful for the support of the Australian public.
“Our 117 McGrath breast care nurses make life for families experiencing breast cancer just that little bit easier; they’re at the heart of what we do at the McGrath Foundation,” he said.
