Claremont Women’s Football Club is preparing to pink up for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA)’s annual Pink Sports Day on the 28th of May 2017.
Last year more than 800 clubs across Australia took part to show their support for Australians affected by breast cancer. This year Claremont Women’s Football Club will join sporting groups nationwide as they rally together in a bid to raise $550,000 for Australians affected by breast cancer.
Funds raised from Pink Sports Day will go directly to BCNA to support its work in ensuring Australians diagnosed with breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.
BCNA CEO, Christine Nolan, said Pink Sports Day is an opportunity for all sporting communities to raise awareness and support local women, men and families affected by breast cancer.
“Nearly 17,586 Australian women and 144 men are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. These women – mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends – need to know that they are supported and not alone,” Christine said.
“Pink Sports Day is a wonderful event that inspires great community participation and spirit, while raising awareness and vital funds for BCNA, and we are very grateful for your support,” she said.
Amanda Robertson, President from Claremont Women’s Football Club is urging the local community to get behind the Tigers “Pink Sports Day is a great opportunity for the whole community to head down to our Cruickshank reserve, Nedlands and support not only the teams competing on the day, but also those in the local community who have been affected by breast cancer,” Amanda Robertson said.
“We hope that everyone will come together, pink up and get behind the teams as they play, as women it is important for us to stand in solidarity for women’s health and to contribute to this cause in any way that we can” said Amanda Robertson.
