Cricket: Hillman club, Baldivis school up for Pink Stumps

THE Hillman Cricket Club and Baldivis Secondary School will step up to the crease and take part in the McGrath Foundation annual Pink Stumps Day next month.

It will be the fourth year that that the Hillman club has taken part in the event aimed at raising funds for breast cancer support.

Pink Stumps Day ambassador and director Tracy Bevan challenged the rest of the community to go pink and is encouraging everyone to participate.

“This is a great way to bring the magic of the Pink Test to your home town or suburb while having fun, showing off your cricket skills and raising money to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia,” Bevan said.

Founder and former test cricketer Glenn McGrath said the event played a vital fundraising role to help achieve the foundation’s mission of ensuring every family impacted by breast cancer has access to a dedicated breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.

“Our 117 McGrath Breast Care Nurses make life for families experiencing breast cancer just that little bit easier; they’re at the heart of what we do,” he said.

“This is the 7seventh annual Pink Stumps Day and it continues to be our biggest community fundraising initiative.

“We are incredibly grateful for the support of people from right across the country.”

While the official Pink Stumps Day is on Saturday 18 February 2017, participants are welcome to host their event before then or anytime up to April 2017.
