Sporting codes across the country are pulling on their socks and adding a splash of pink to their games this winter to support the McGrath Foundation.
The Pull On Your Socks initiative encourages all types of sporting clubs to turn a game day pink during the season and wear the McGrath Foundation’s Pink Socks as well as hosting a fundraising event. With a different, limited edition collectable sock each year, every dollar raised will help the McGrath Foundation fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities’ right across Australia and increase breast awareness in young people.
“Whether you’re into athletics, tennis, netball, hockey, basketball, football, AFL, union or league; don our McGrath Foundation Pink Socks and host a fundraising event to become part of one giant team having fun while helping ensure more families can access our amazing McGrath Breast Care Nurses,” said McGrath Foundation ambassador and director, Tracy Bevan.
Australian sporting heroes including Lleyton Hewitt, Ellyse Perry, Wendell Sailor, Billy Slater and Jamie Dwyer, to name a few, have come together from all codes and are asking clubs and teams across Australia to #PullOnYourSocks and show their support for the McGrath Foundation.
With 43 people diagnosed with breast cancer each day, the McGrath Foundation is encouraging communities across the country to follow the lead of these famous sports stars by purchasing their team socks as well as hosting a fundraising event to help support families experiencing breast cancer.
“Last year we had over 200 Pull On Your Socks events across Australia and this year we anticipate even more codes stepping up and getting their clubs involved within local communities,” said Bevan.
So, put your best foot forward this winter and purchase your collectable pair of McGrath Foundation pink socks.

Socks are available from www.mcgrathfoundation.com.au/shoppink at $15 per pair or $12 per pair + postage for orders over 20 pairs.
