SPORTING clubs are encouraged to think pink and fundraise for the Breast Cancer Network Australia.

Whether it’s a junior, senior, amateur or community sporting club, BCNA is encouraging all to sign up to hold their own Pink Sports Day in support of the 17,000 women diagnosed with breast cancer every year.

Local lawn bowlers are among those who have heeded the call, holding their own pink day at the Hilton Park Bowling Club this month.

BCNA chief executive Christine Nolan said events could be big or small, from a sausage sizzle or cake stall to a raffle competition or pink uniforms.

“Pink Sports Day is a wonderful event that inspires great community participation and spirit while raising awareness and vital funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia,” she said.

“We really encourage all sporting clubs to get involved, no matter how big or small that involvement may be.”
