Hockey Victoria partners with Breast Cancer Network Australia
Hockey Victoria announced a new partnership with Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) at a special launch last night.
Hockey Victoria will be turning pink across the Mother’s Day weekend of 12-14 May to celebrate its partnership with BCNA.
The weekend will be launched at the Annual Women and Girls Breakfast on Friday 12 May at the Park on Albert Park Lake, with a panel made up of Australia’s brightest stars in women’s sport.
Hockeyroo Rachael Lynch, Melbourne Vixen Tegan Phillip, Western Bulldogs AFLW marquee player Ellie Blackburn and Collingwood AFLW marquee player Moama Hope headline the panel.
All clubs are encouraged to wear pink socks, and register their clubs for the Pink Sports Day, where they will be provided with a link for club members to donate directly to BCNA.
Registered clubs will receive free Pink Sports Day goodie packs that includes posters, balloons, tattoos and much more.
Pink Sports Day is a meaningful way for your club or sporting organisation to raise awareness of a disease that is diagnosed in 48 families every day, and to also celebrate the important role women play in grassroots sport.
Former Hockeyroo and Vipers player Emily Hurtz will be a BCNA Ambassador on behalf of Hockey Victoria.
This cause is especially dear to Hurtz’ heart, as she too has been touched by breast cancer.
The weekend will conclude with Greensborough playing Camberwell in Hockey Victoria’s Premier League on Sunday 14 May.
The game can also be enjoyed via a live stream.
