It’s almost summer and cricket season is here again! Whether you’re a backyard batter, club cricketer or school smasher – the McGrath Foundation is calling on Aussie families to get together for a 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 schools, cricket clubs and teams, 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 kids together and enjoy Australia’s favourite summer tradition while batting for the McGrath Foundation. Over 1,200 people all across Australia held games last season and helped raise just over $1 million,” says McGrath Foundation Co-founder and President, Glenn McGrath.
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 school or backyard 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,” continues Glenn.
While the official Pink Stumps Day is 16 February 2019, communities can hold their own event at any time by registering at https://www.pinkstumpsday.com.au/.
Anyone who registers before 30 November 2018 has the chance to win the Ultimate Sydney Pink Test Experience including return airfares to Sydney from their closest Australian capital city, accommodation at a five star Sydney hotel and tickets to days 3 and 4 of the Sydney Test – for four people.
