Club tick­led pink to help

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Community Classifieds -

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.
