This season, Harbord Football Club will be playing passionately in purple socks to support the annual #PlayinPurple campaign for pancreatic cancer.
Football NSW, Manly Warringah Football Association and clubs across the peninsula get behind #PlayinPurple. This campaign helps PanKind, The Australian Pancreatic Cancer Foundation raise awareness for pancreatic cancer, Australia’s third biggest cancer killer.
PanKind CEO Michelle Stewart said, “We are excited to see football fields on the peninsula turned purple again for pancreatic cancer. Awareness on this scale is exactly what we need to help shine a light on this disease and we can’t thank clubs in the MWFA enough for their ongoing support each year. It is truly special.”
England continued, “In addition to helping a great cause, you get some really good quality socks which are great for training, so it’s a win-win! We’ll update with more information, but I’d encourage teams to organise early and be sure they don’t miss out.”
MWFA’s #PlayinPurple weekend is 29-30 July. Purple socks and beanies can be ordered here.
