Splash of pink to raise funds

Pilbara News - - Sports -

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.

Regis­tra­tions are open at www.pinks­tumps­day.com.au.
