Trinity College holds Pink Sock Day, raises more than $3000 for McGrath Foundation

TRINITY College held its inaugural Pink Sock Day recently, and raised more than $3000 for the McGrath Foundation Pull On Your Socks initiative.

Year 11 and 12 athletes donned pink socks for their sporting fixtures against Scotch College at the Waterford Playing Fields on June 11.

Spectators were asked to donate and were encouraged to wear pink.

The event was organised by Trinity College Head Prefect Lochie Taylor.

“As well as raising funds and awareness for the McGrath Foundation, my aim is to support women’s health, focusing on our mothers and all the women who encourage us through school and life in general,” he said.

McGrath Foundation ambassador and director Tracy Bevan said Pull On Your Socks played a vital role in achieving the Foundation’s mission of ensuring every family impacted by breast cancer had access to a dedicated breast care nurse.

“Since 2005 the McGrath Foundation has placed 110 McGrath Breast Care Nurses across Australia who supported more than 44,000 families to date,” she said.

“This vital service is provided free of charge and available through self-referral.”
