Rams think pink for a cause
Jess Layt - Camden-Narellan Advertiser
The Camden Rams will be playing for more than the win when they take the field this weekend – they’re helping fight breast cancer.
The Camden Junior Rugby League Football Club is hosting a Pink Sports Day event to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia this Saturday.
Their teams will don special custom-made pink Rams socks on the day.
Club secretary Kristy Peters said Camden JRLFC always try to raise awareness for various health issues each year.
“We think as a club its important to raise awareness for many illnesses,” she said.
“So this year we have chosen to do Pink Sports Day to raise awareness for breast cancer so we can actually support people in our local community.”
She said many of the mums have been sharing their own cancer journeys and experiences with their children and the players have a greater understanding of the disease.
Committee members will sell cupcakes and cookies, raffle tickets and the customised socks to raise funds.
There will also be a jelly bean guessing competition.
“We’re hoping to raise at least $3500 with our initiatives,” she said.
“We’ve tied this in with Mother’s Day so we can have a pink weekend.”
Pink Sports Day is supported by ambassador and retired AFL great Shane Crawford, who said the day is a fantastic opportunity for sporting groups and local communities to come together and show their support for people going through cancer battles.
All game attendees are invited to wear pink to join in and show their support on the day.
