The East Fremantle Junior Football Club has decided to join Pull On Your Socks 2015 – an initiative from the McGrath Foundation that brings a splash of pink to our winter sport. The McGrath Foundation needs our help to reach its tenth anniversary goal of increasing the number of McGrath Breast Care Nurses across Australia to 110 to support 10,000 families experiencing breast cancer. To date, the McGrath Foundation has funded 102 nurses who have supported 33,000 families through the challenges of breast cancer.
As a Club, we have decided that this is a fun way to fundraise for a great cause, and that as a local community we can get together and get behind this. We would like every team, including those Coaches and Parents that can, to wear the McGrath Foundation Pink Socks for games on the weekend of 15th & 16th August 2015.
Teams can also come up with individual fundraising ideas leading up to and on that weekend (cake stalls, raffles, sponsors wearing the socks, ideas welcome). The club has registered with the McGrath Foundation and set up an online fundraising website, with a goal of raising $5,000. The link is below, please share this link to your family and friends and help to raise awareness of our fundraising activity.
The Pink Socks cost $12, which contributes towards our fundraising target. They will be ordered through your child’s team manager, and any parents who would like to order them can do so as well. Please send your orders to your team manger by July 1st.
If anyone would like to help organise additional fundraising activities, please let Louisa McCall know (0418 935 835).
We hope you’ll all get behind the club and support this great cause, and most importantly have fun whilst doing so. Keep an eye on the fundraising page to see our progress, which will also be updated with photos of our teams getting into the spirit of it!
