Show your support for the thousands of people experiencing breast cancer by taking part in the McGrath Foundation's largest community fundraising campaign.
With cricket season back in full swing, the foundation is encouraging the community to take part in Pink Stumps Day.
Whether you're a backyard batter, club cricketer or school smasher – the McGrath Foundation is calling on Aussies to grab their mates and pink up their cricket game by registering to host a Pink Stumps Day this season.
Pink Stumps Day is where cricket clubs and teams, workplaces, schools and backyard players across the nation turn their cricket game pink to fundraise for the McGrath Foundation.
Pink Stumps Day plays a vital fundraising role to help achieve the Foundation's mission of ensuring every family affected by breast cancer has access to a free McGrath Breast Care Nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.
"Hosting a Pink Stumps Day is a great way to get your family and mates together and enjoy Australia's favourite summer tradition while batting for the McGrath Foundation,” co-founder and president, Glenn McGrath said.
“Over 1,200 people all across Australia held games last season and helped raise just over $1 million.”
The McGrath Foundation is getting ready for the annual Sydney Pink Test in January and hosting your own Pink Stumps Day 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.
“Everyone who registers for Pink Stumps Day will receive everything they need to Pink Up their event,” Glenn said.
While the official Pink Stumps Day is February 16, 2019, communities can hold their own event at any time by registering at https://www.pinkstumpsday.com.au/.
Anyone who registers before November 30, 2018 has the chance to win the Ultimate Sydney Pink Test Experience including return airfares to Sydney from their closest Australian capital city.
