[Insert club name] players will be seeing pink on Sunday 28 October for the inaugural Breast

BCNA CEO Maxine Morand, herself a breast cancer survivor, says Pink Golf Day is a great
way for sporting communities to demonstrate their support not just for women affected by
breast cancer, but for their families and friends too.
“When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer her loved ones go through their own
difficult journey. Getting involved in Pink Golf Day is a way clubs can support those who
support our women,” Maxine said.
“More than 14,0001 women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year alone.
The funds raised via Pink Golf Day are critical to the work BCNA does in offering women
from all over Australia, ongoing and up-to-date information, services and support.”
Ms Morand added that not only will Pink Golf Day raise funds to provide information and
support for women, but also provides a meaningful way for clubs to get together in
celebration and remembrance of the women in their club and community affected by breast
