Pink Sports Days are a great way for your school or sporting club, association or league to rally together to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) and our work supporting Australians affected by breast cancer.
Being told you have breast cancer changes your life in an instant, and the lives of those around you – families, workplaces, sporting clubs, schools and local communities. Funds raised through Pink Sports Days mean BCNA can provide vital information and support for the over 20,000 Australian women and men diagnosed each year.
Hosting a Pink Sports Day is easy and everyone can get involved, either on the field or on the sidelines. When you register, you’ll set up your dedicated online fundraising page that makes it easy for members to donate. You can also order a fantastic range of Pink Sports Day merchandise to help you ‘pink up’ both on and off the field – pink socks, pink laces, pink beanies and much more! Then, on the day of your event, you can add a cake stall, sausage sizzle, lucky dip or raffle to raise extra funds.
BCNA will help you every step of the way. Every host receives a free starter pack with posters, balloons, tattoo transfers, Pink Lady silhouettes and donation tins. There’s extensive digital support including the dedicated donation page and social media imagery.
You can hold a Pink Sports Day any time through out the year and we encourage you to pick a date that works best for your club calendar. Many clubs choose the Mother’s Day weekend in May or during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, but we’re here to support you at any time throughout the year.
Every dollar you raise helps BCNA support more women and men diagnosed with breast cancer; and hosting a Pink Sports Day is also a great way to acknowledge the important role women play in grassroots sport.
