A Shepparton nurse has urged Little Athletics centres to add a splash of pink to their hurdles, relays and high jumps this month.

Goulburn Valley Health’s McGrath Breast Care Nurse Michelle Dunne said the money raised through initatives like Pinkletics meant nurses like herself could continue their work.

‘‘By turning everything from their shoelaces to stands pink, Little Athletics centres right across Australia will help us make these numbers grow.’’
The first 200 Little Athletics Centres to register will receive a Pinkletics Team Kit which includes hot pink McGrath Foundation shoelaces, Pinkletics 2012 temporary tattoos, pink face paint sticks, pink participation ribbons and pink McGrath Foundation balloons.
All funds raised will help the McGrath Foundation to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and to increase breast awareness in young Australian women.
