Softball Australia is partnering with Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) to invite and encourage the States, Associations and Clubs to participate in a Pink Sports Day this summer season.
BCNA is the peak national organisation for Australians affected by breast cancer. They work to support, inform, connect and represent all Australians affected by breast cancer.
This nationally sanctioned round will show support for the thousands of families affected by breast cancer in Australia each year and raise funds for BCNA to help maintain and grow their free information and support for Australians affected by breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian women and 19,371 women and 164 men will be diagnosed this year – that is 53 people, every day. A breast cancer diagnosis doesn’t just affect the person diagnosed. It has a ripple effect through families, schools, sporting clubs and their extended community. A ‘PLAY4BCNA’ Pink Sports Day is a great way to show support, raise funds and have some fun with ‘pinking up’ your teams and diamonds.
Softball Australia and BCNA have worked together to identify the weekends of November 30 and December 1, 2019 as the host round (November 16 and 17 in ACT).

A free support kit will be sent from BCNA to help you pink up and make the event a success upon receiving your online registration. Merchandise, including knee high pink lady socks are available to order from the BCNA Pink Sports Day online store to help add some pink to the players’ uniforms for the day. We encourage you to order your pink socks from BCNA as this will contribute to the fundraising.
We look forward to seeing your diamonds turn pink!
