Green laces to raise awareness
Ararat and Stawell footballers and netballers will wear green shoelaces during Wimmera Football League and Wimmera Netball Association action at Ararat’s Alexandra Oval on Saturday to raise awareness of muscular dystrophy.
Players will also use the occasion to raise money for research into finding a cure for the disease.
There are nine different types of muscular dystrophy, which attacks muscles in the body, including the heart. There is no cure.
