Aimed at driving funding for McGrath Breast Care Nurses and raising awareness of the importance of breast health understanding throughout the netball community, the McGrath Foundation and GIANTS Netball are delighted to announce a three-year charity partnership.
McGrath Foundation will be one of the GIANTS’ match day charity partners for the 2021 season.
In a first for the club, the GIANTS will partner with three charities across the 2021 season, supporting the McGrath Foundation, Ronald McDonald House and the Butterfly Foundation.
McGrath Foundation will align with the GIANTS for round two, when the GIANTS host the Collingwood Magpies at home at Ken Rosewall Arena.
In round eight when the GIANTS host the Adelaide Thunderbirds at home, they will welcome Little GIANTS Round in support of the Ronald McDonald House.
And in round 11, the GIANTS will support the Butterfly Foundation through a Night at the Netty.
McGrath Foundation Ambassador and Director Tracy Bevan is thrilled to be partnering with the club.
“With one in seven women diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, unfortunately almost everyone will know someone who has or will have the disease,” Ms Bevan said.
“This partnership will play an important role in helping the McGrath Foundation fund our amazing nurses and raise awareness amongst the netball community of the importance of good breast health understanding and self-checking.”
GIANTS Netball Executive General Manager, Tim Underwood, said it is a proud moment for the club.
“We are excited and honoured to have the opportunity to work alongside these three reputable charities, supporting their work through a range of activities and designated matches throughout the season,” said Mr Underwood.
“These three incredible organisations work across the different struggles or challenges people can face across three different stages of life.
“As a club we look forward to raising the awareness of these life challenges and supporting our community.”
