The Nanango & District Netball Association will be turning “hot pink” on the Mother’s Day weekend (May 12-13) to pay tribute to local women and their families who have been affected by breast cancer.
Club spokeswoman Lynn Smith said they would be taking part in Breast Cancer Network Australia’s Pink Footy & Netball Day.
“It’s a cause close to our hearts,” she said.
“As we start to count down to our Pink Footy & Netball Day we’re inviting our biggest fans to cheer us on and to dig deep to help us reach our personal fundraising goal.
“Every dollar counts so please help us make a difference with a secure online donation, big or small.
“Please visit our fundraising page and click on ‘Donate’. You will automatically receive a tax-deductible receipt via email.”
Every day, 38 women will be told they have breast cancer and seven women will die from the disease.
Breast Cancer Network Australia will receive 100 per cent of all donations.
“Your money will go towards providing support to women with quality information, treatment and care,” Lynn said.
