Altona Gators to pink up for breast cancer support

Altona Gators is preparing to pink up for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA)’s annual Pink Sports Day on 14 July 2018.

Pink Sports Day is an opportunity for sporting groups around Australia to show their support for, and pay tribute to, people in their local community who have been affected by breast cancer.

Last year more than 800 clubs across Australia took part to show their support for Australians affected by breast cancer. This year Altona Gators Basketball will join sporting groups nationwide as they rally together to raise funds for Australians affected by breast cancer.

Funds raised from Pink Sports Day will go directly to BCNA to support its work in ensuring Australians diagnosed with breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.

BCNA CEO, Christine Nolan, said Pink Sports Day is an opportunity for all sporting communities to raise awareness and support local women, men and families affected by breast cancer. “Nearly 17,586 Australian women and 144 men are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. These women – mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends – need to know that they are supported and not alone,” Christine said. “Pink Sports Day is a wonderful event that inspires great community participation and spirit, while raising awareness and vital funds for BCNA, and we are very grateful for your support,” she said.

We urge the local community to get behind the Altona Gators Basketball Club this Pink Sports Day. “Pink Sports Day is a great opportunity for the whole community to head down to our Altona Sports Stadium and support not only the teams competing on the day, but also those in the local community who have been affected by breast cancer,” Randy Shanklin, Altona Gators Director of Coaching said. “We hope that everyone will come together, pink up and get behind the teams as they play for a great cause!”

Gators is inviting members of our community to ‘pink up’ and come down to cheer us on as we play in support of those affected by breast cancer.
