West Moreton Anglican College shows pink support of Breast Cancer Network Australia with a Pink Round on Saturday, May 28

WestMAC sporting teams were excited to gear up in pink on May 28, for the annual Pink round to raise money and awarness for Breast Cancer.


The vibrant community showed their support by dressing in pink, bringing a significant woman in your life, and watching as WestMAC hosted John Paul College at Karrabin.

The amount of $3782.40 was rasied through the selling of pink scrunchies, pink socks, baked good and the generosity of the P&F BBQ, who donated a chunk of their proceeds on the day.

WestMAC's sports captains (Matthew Hayes (cricket), Kaja Roberts (hockey), Aliesha Sartor (netball) and Riley Cox (tennis)) led the sports community in supporting this important cause.

WestMAC Principal Mr Geoff McLay said he was proud of the tremendous support shown by the College Community for the eighth annual Pink Round to raise money for the Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA).

Mr McLay said all Firsts teams (rugby, netball, hockey, and tennis) wore pink uniforms and socks while the remainder of WestMAC’s 29 TAS teams supported the worthy cause by wearing pink socks. More than 300 pink socks and 230 pink scrunchies were sold before May 28.

“It is gratifying how much the WestMAC community have always supported this excellent initiative and there is always a great show of pink by supporters and players on the day,’’ Mr McLay said.

“As we lead into our 30th year as a College community, we are proud to honour and showcase The WestMAC Way values of kindness, respect, and courage in our pursuit to raise money and make a difference in supporting the Breast Cancer Network.’’

Mr McLay said the Pink Round started in 2015 as an avenue to raise funds and awareness for the important cause, as well as to honour the memory of much-loved Rugby Supporters Group head Mrs Andrea Graham, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2014.
