Summer season is a great time to get involved and host a PLAY4BCNA Pink Sports Day.
Despite some interruptions to community sport due to COVID-19, BCNA is thrilled to announce that 2021 summer registrations to host a Pink Sports Day are now open.
Traditionally the spring and summer seasons of lawn bowls, softball, baseball, netball and basketball see the greens, pitches, diamonds and courts graced with a touch of pink as players and supporters show support for Australians affected by breast cancer by hosting a PLAY4BCNA Pink Sports Day.
All it takes is one community champion at a club or association to get the ball rolling, register the event and invite others to be a part of a wonderful community sporting event. BCNA provides free support materials to our Pink Sports Day hosts, to help make the event a big ‘pink success’. The support kit includes decorations and donation tins along with downloadable digital support materials and a dedicated event fundraising page to share.
The funds raised help BCNA to continue to provide access to the very best support, treatment and care to those affected by breast cancer. The visible support, community spirit and awareness raised plays an equally important role in the day.
The City of Frankston Bowling Club held its inaugural ‘Pink Pennant Day’ earlier this year. Craig Williams, CEO of City of Frankston Bowling Club inc. shared that, ‘The sea of colour across our greens, with lots of pink, club decorations, raffles, marquees and balloons made for not only wonderful memories, but also some wonderful photos! Everyone that contributed to the day felt the warmth and joy of both giving and/or volunteering. It was good for the soul, something very important in these uncertain times.’
No matter where you live or the sporting pursuit of choice – you can get involved and be a part of the pink sea of support this summer. To find out more or register to host a Pink Sports Day visit the BCNA Pink Sports Day website.
