Beam­ing with pride

Stu­dents col­lect vi­tal items for young peo­ple in need

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

WITH sum­mer just around the corner the McGrath Foun­da­tion is call­ing on res­i­dents to “step up to the crease” by reg­is­ter­ing to host a Pink Stumps Day cricket match.

Pink Stumps Day, en­dorsed by Cricket Aus­tralia, lets cricket clubs, com­mu­nity groups, busi­nesses, schools and mates bring the magic of the Pink Test to their com­mu­nity by turn­ing a cricket match pink and fundrais­ing for the McGrath Foun­da­tion.

About 17,000 women and 150 men are di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer ev­ery year.

Money raised through the cam­paign will fund McGrath breast care nurses who make life for fam­i­lies with breast can­cer that lit­tle bit eas­ier.

Regis­tra­tions for Pink Stumps Day are now open at www.pinks­tumps­day.com.au.

While the of­fi­cial Pink Stumps Day is on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 17 par­tic­i­pants are wel­come to host their event any time up to April next year.

To­gether, we can make a dif­fer­ence.
