Umpires will wear yellow armbands this weekend as a show of support for the Call To Arms initiative to help reduce the incidence of men’s cancer.

Tuesday 27 July 2010

The great community work by Queensland umpires continues this weekend with their support of cancer research.

The umpires have joined the Call to Arms campaign, which raises the awareness of cancer in men and raises funds for cancer research.

Cancer is the leading cause of death in Australia.

All umpires will wear yellow armbands over this weekend’s round of fixtures to mark their support for Calls To Arms and fundraise to support the initiative.

A number of umpires have indicated they will donate their match payments to the cause.

The Queensland football community is urged to support the umpires with this worthy campaign.
