The Esperance Netball Association are set to join hundreds of sporting clubs from around the country by participating in the ‘Pink Up’ on Saturday May 26, for Breast Cancer Network Australia’s Pink Sports Day campaign.
The event will provide an opportunity for people in the community to show their support for those affected by breast cancer and Breast Cancer Network Australia is calling on sporting grounds to hold a Pink Sports Day event to support Australians with breast cancer.
With more than 1000 sporting club across the country raising $400,000 for Breast Cancer Network Australia in 2017, the Network are aiming to raise $550,000 this year.
The funds raised will go towards providing information, support and connection for those affected by breast cancer.
In 2018, 18,235 Australians will be diagnosed with breast cancer – including 148 men.
Although many clubs are set to hold their Pink Sports Day this Mother’s Day weekend, clubs are advised that they can participate throughout the year.
