Each day this year, 55 Australians will be told they have breast cancer – over 20,000 people in 2020.
It’s also expected that 170 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and many are also affected through the diagnosis of a partner or loved one.
An event for everyone
A Pink Sports Day is a great way for a club or sporting association to rally players, officials and supporters together to help raise awareness and funds in support of Australians affected by breast cancer.
“The sense of achievement after hosting our Pink Sports Day each year is a feeling of overwhelming happiness and pride,” says Hope Evans from Romsey Football and Netball Club.
“We are supporting the great work of BCNA and helping positively impact the lives of people with breast cancer and their families. Our day grows every year, we are proud to have raised over $100,000 since 2010.”
A Pink Sports day can be held at any time throughout the year. Many clubs choose to hold their fundraiser over Mother’s Day weekend in May or during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.
All funds raised through Pink Sports Day go directly to BCNA to support their work in ensuring all Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care.
