Club tickled pink to help
PLAYERS and supporters of the Claremont Women’s Football Club ‘pinked up’ recently for Breast Cancer Network Australia’s (BCNA) annual Pink Sports Day.
The event was an opportunity for the club to show its support for, and to pay tribute to, local women, men and families affected by breast cancer while raising awareness and vital funds for BCNA.
The club raised more than $400 through donations and fundraising activities on the day, as well as an extra $1000 through merchandise sales of pink socks and pink tape.
Club secretary Angel Hayward said Pink Sports Day was an important day in the club’s calendar.
“Pink Sports Day is an amazing show of support for those affected by breast cancer,” she said.
“One of the reasons we participated in Pink Sports Day was to ensure sufferers and their families know that they don’t have to go through breast cancer alone and that our community is right behind them.
“We are so proud of what our teams (Claremont Women’s Football Club and East Fremantle Football Club) raised and want to say a huge thank you to the local community for their support.”
Funds raised from Pink Sports Day will go directly to BCNA to support its work ensuring Australians diagnosed with breast cancer receive the support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.
