BCNA Themed Round

Posted on - Latest News, Featured

BCNA Round in 2023 will be held over Round 5 of the VAFA Season

May 12th-14th

The VAFA celebrates its connection with Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) through the upcoming Themed round by asking clubs to raise funds for BCNA by hosting a Pink Sports Day.

Each day 57 Australians will be told they have breast cancer – that’s over 20,000 people in 2023. It is expected that 170 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year and many more are affected through diagnosis of a partner, mother, or friend.

Hosting a Pink Sports Day is a great way to show support and involve everyone, either on the oval or the sidelines. There are a variety of ways to raise funds for BCNA including hosting a Club Luncheon, running a club raffle, additional items for your club canteen or rattling tins for donations.

Any VAFA clubs that would like to be involved can register to host a Pink Sports Day here.

The VAFA as an association is aiming to raise more than $30,000 in 2023 after raising $28,000 in 2022. To have your clubs fundraising tally contribute to the Association tally please clicking on the following link and then clicking “Join Association”.
