‘‘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.
