SMCA turning pink

SALE-MAFFRA Cricket Association will turn pink on Saturday, with many clubs set to participate in Pink Stumps Day to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.

Four Sale-Maffra clubs will be part of the 1000 community clubs across Australia to participate in the initiative to help the McGrath Foundation raise funds to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia and increase breast awareness in young Australian women.

Nambrok Cricket Club has registered both its third grade and fifth grade sides for Pink Stumps Day this Saturday, while Maffra, Heyfield and Wurruk will also participate in the concept.

The Sale-Maffra women’s team also supported the cause in their match against Leongatha at Wurruk on Sunday.

To date the McGrath Foundation has 80 McGrath Breast Care Nurses working in communities right across Australia who have helped support more than 19,300 Australian families experiencing breast cancer.

The Pink Stumps Day initiative will help the McGrath Foundations goal of 150 McGrath Breast Care Nurses to ensure every Australian family experiencing breast cancer has access to a breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.

Pink Stumps Day has been extended with clubs able to participate up until March 31.
