Pink Test Hits 10 Years
2018 marks the 10th anniversary of the Pink Test, a partnership between the McGrath Foundation and Cricket Australia’s community action program Cricket Cares.
Over the past decade, millions of dollars have been raised to help place McGrath Breast Care Nurses right across Australia, thanks to the entire Australian cricket community.
It costs around $380,000 to fund the training and placement of a McGrath Breast care Nurse for 3 years.
The Pink Test has been held at the Sydney Cricket Ground since 2009, and has proven to be one
of the most iconic fundraising events Australia has ever seen.
Each year, both players and spectators don pink uniforms, shirts, bandannas and tattoos in support of the McGrath Foundation and their mission to raise awareness and support every patient and family suffering the
effects of breast cancer, regardless of their location or financial situation.
The Sydney Pink Test between Australia and England will run from Thursday January 4 to Monday January 8, 2018 at the SGC.
The third day of The Pink Test is known as Jane McGrath Day, a remembrance of the McGrath Foundation’s chief founder, who tragically passed away in June 2008.
Jane McGrath Day will take place on Saturday January 6. Sarah caught up with Jane's best friend Tracy Bevan to talk a little about the Mcgrath Foundation.
