Kyabram Bombers will be wearing pink jumpers this Saturday night to raise awareness about breast cancer.
Kyabram Football Netball Club players aren’t afraid to wear pink – at least when it is for a good cause.
This Saturday in the club’s home game against Tatura, senior and reserves footballers will be wearing pink jumpers to raise awareness about breast cancer.
The players have given a contribution to their production to help raise funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia.
The netballers are also supporting the cause by wearing pink socks, shoe laces and perhaps patches (if they arrive in time).
Club member Kirra Vick got the idea for the pink campaign after seeing her brother Josh’s team in West Australia wear pink to draw attention to the cause.
Ms Vick said it was an easy sell to convince the players to go pink.
‘‘They all agreed that it was a great way to do community service and a great way for the community to get behind an important issue,’’ she said.
The club is hoping supporters will also create a ‘‘pink out’’ in the stands by wearing at least one pink item. People will be collecting donations for the cause.
The club will also host a ladies night at the Wilf Cox Community Complex from 6.30
The day’s netball matches will start at 1.15
