Pink Stumps Day has been helping the McGrath Foundation hit a “six” since it began in 2011. File photo.Canowindra Cricket Club will be one of a thousand cricket teams around the country turning pink this summer as the McGrath Foundation spreads pink from the pitch right across the country with the club holding Pink Stumps Day on February 15, 2014.
Pink Stumps Day has been helping the McGrath Foundation hit a “six” since it began in 2011 with over 2,500 clubs, schools, communities and businesses, raising over $2.3 million for the McGrath Foundation.
But this year it’s going to be even bigger and pinker than before with the McGrath Foundation aiming to raise a staggering $1 million through communities right across Australia.
Each year, Pink Stumps Day demonstrates the power of communities coming together to achieve something quite extraordinary and thanks to this support, just like the Canowindra Cricket Club v Valleys Cricket Club match the McGrath Foundation is proud to have hit its maiden ton this summer with 100 McGrath Breast Care Nurses working nationally.
McGrath Breast Care Nurses are providing an invaluable service for families experiencing breast cancer and the McGrath Foundation is working to ensure every family experiencing breast cancer in Australia has access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.
Co-Founder and President of the McGrath Foundation, Glenn McGrath, wants to thank the cricketing community for their support again this year and is proud that for many cricket teams, Pink Stumps Day has become not only a fixture, but a highlight of their community calendar.
“At the McGrath Foundation, having the support of the community is so important to us. Each and every day we see people doing amazing things to help us achieve our vision of a breast care nurse for every family experiencing breast cancer in Australia,” Mr McGrath said.
“The support of our Community, Corporate, Government and Foundation Friends, as well as the Australian public, has helped us provide a McGrath Breast Care Nurse to over 25,000 families in Australia. To think $2.3 million has been raised through Pink Stumps Day alone in three years is quite incredible, so with Canowindras’s help this year, we’re hoping to smash our $1 million fundraising target and help support even more families through their breast cancer experience.”
Canowindra v Valleys
Canowindra Cricket Club is inviting friends, family and the local community to join them for Pink Stumps Day on Saturday, February 15. The important 1st grade match will be followed with an auction of the baggy pink caps at Canowindra Services club.
All proceeds from the day will help the McGrath Foundation see their vision become a reality, ensuring every family experiencing breast cancer has access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.
