IT’S summer and cricket season is here again.
Whether you’re a backyards batter, club cricketer or school smasher, the McGrath Foundation is calling on local Tasmanians to grab their mates and “pink up” their cricket game by registering to host a Pink Stumps Day this season.
Pink Stumps Day is the McGrath Foundation’s largest community fundraising campaign where cricket clubs and teams, workplaces, schools and backyard players across the nation turn their cricket game pink to fundraise.
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,” McGrath Foundation co-founder and president Glenn McGrath said.
“More than 1,200 people all across Australia held games last season and helped raise more than $1 million.
“Everyone who registers for Pink Stumps Day will receive everything they need to pink up their event.”
While the official Pink Stumps Day is 16 February 2019, communities can hold their own event at any time by registering at www.pinkstumpsday.com.au.
