Griffith going pink for charity

Griffith Moorooka are raising funds for the Breast Cancer Network Australia on Saturday.

The Griffith Moorooka Reds will be turning pink this weekend, as part of Pink Sports Day, raising funds for breast cancer research.

The Roosters and Cobras seniors, reserves and women’s teams will all play off at the one venue on Saturday May 11.

Both Griffith Moorooka and Logan’s women’s sides will don pink socks arm bands as part of the Pink Sports Day, to help raise money for the Breast Cancer Network Australia.

Reds and Queensland player, Jenna Vandyk, said it was really important to contribute to such a good cause.

“We’re really excited to be able to give back to the community in this way,” she said.

Every day, 40 women will be told they have breast cancer and seven women will die from the disease.

Vandyk said she was hoping they would draw a crowd for the pink sports day, to be able to contribute as much as possible to helping breast cancer research and treamtment.

“Hopefully we get plenty of support , so that we can raise as much money as possible to help.”

The Breast Cancer Network Australia launched the day on the back of the success of Footy and netball pink day.

All of the money raised from the event will go support to women with quality information, treatment and care.
