THE BALGA Soccer Club will “pink up” this season in support of Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).

The initiative, part of the charity’s Pink Sports Day, encourages players and community members to show their support for those affected by breast cancer.

To show their support, the Balga Soccer Club will be pinking up its games for people in the local community affected by breast cancer, including husbands, friends and family members as they go through their own difficult journey.

Long-time BCNA supporter and Pink Sports Day Ambassador Shane Crawford said the day was not just about supporting the women who have been diagnosed, it was also about supporting the husbands, partners, family members and friends who are also on the journey.

“Most sporting clubs – no matter what sport – have a pretty incredible spirit,” he said.

“So I’m looking forward to seeing the clubs turn pink on the field to show their support for a cause that’s close to all of our hearts.”

All money raised will ensure those affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care suitable to their individual needs.
