Kick­ing goals for re­search

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Driveway -

CLARE­MONT Foot­ball Club will turn pink for next Satur­day’s clash with Su­bi­aco at the Clare­mont Show­ground to sup­port the Na­tional Breast Cancer Foun­da­tion’s (NBCF) Real Men Wear Pink cam­paign.

Clare­mont play­ers will wear a limited-edi­tion jumper and fans are en­cour­aged to wear pink along with their Tigers colours.

Clare­mont chief ex­ec­u­tive Gra­ham Moss said they aimed to raise more than $10,000 for NBCF at the game and through­out the fundrais­ing cam­paign.

“Not only will it raise aware­ness about the im­por­tance of breast cancer re­search, but it will pro­vide valu­able fund­ing,” Moss said.

NBCF chief ex­ec­u­tive Sarah Hosk­ing said the Real Men Wear Pink ini­tia­tive was a great op­por­tu­nity to get the whole com­mu­nity in­volved in rais­ing funds for breast cancer re­search.

“The en­thu­si­asm CFC is show­ing is an in­spi­ra­tion to other teams and we’re so grate­ful for the funds, but also the work the team is do­ing is rais­ing aware­ness of the very real need for on­go­ing re­search,” Dr Hosk­ing said.
