The power of pink
Friday, 11th May, 2012
The Broken Hill Netball Association (BHNA) will sport pink on Tuesday as players compete in the fourth annual Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) Pink Footy and Netball Day.
BCNA’s Pink Footy and Netball Day runs in conjunction with Mother’s Day and is a chance for footy and netball clubs across Australia to show their support for women and families who have been affected by breast cancer.
The BHNA will be decorating the clubhouse and courts as well as selling Breast Cancer temporary tattoos and wristband merchandise at the courts next week. All proceeds go to support the Breast Cancer Network Australia’s fantastic work.
Donation tins will also be spread around the netball courts for players and the general public to make a contribution to this worthy cause.
As a lead up to this event, a successful sausage sizzle was held at the courts this week with all monies raised going towards the BH Netball Association’s contribution to the cause.
All teams playing on Tuesday are urged to incorporate the colour pink into their uniform in some way. It could be pink hair ribbons, shoe laces, leg warmers, socks, hairspray - the more pink the better.
There will be a prize for the team that makes the most creative use of the colour.
“Pink Footy and Netball Day is a great opportunity for the whole community to put on a show of strength and support for women and families affected by breast cancer”, said BH Netball Association President, Cathryn Jelbert.
“We hope that everyone will come down, wear some pink, get involved and cheer on the teams.”
