CLAREMONT Football Club will turn pink for next Saturday’s clash with Subiaco Football Club at the Claremont Showground to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s (NBCF) Real Men Wear Pink campaign.

Claremont players will wear a limited edition jumper and fans are encouraged to wear pink along with their Tigers colours.

Claremont chief executive Graham Moss said they aimed to raise more than $10,000 for NBCF at the game and throughout the fundraising campaign.

“Not only will it raise awareness about the importance of breast cancer research, but it will provide valuable funding,” Moss said.

NBCF chief executive Sarah Hosking said the Real Men Wear Pink was a great opportunity to get the whole community involved in raising funds for breast cancer research.

“The enthusiasm CFC is showing is an inspiration to other teams and we’re so grateful for the funds, but also the work the team is doing is raising awareness of the very real need for ongoing research,” Dr Hosking said.

Claremont personnel, including Moss will dress with a touch of pink to celebrate the fundraising efforts later in the campaign on June 24.
