Netball community helps fight against cancer again!

The Kids’ Cancer Project would like to sincerely thank Netball NSW for another incredible year of partnership. Crazy Hair & Sock Day, the most colourful fundraising event, raised a whopping $52,000 in 2017 for the cause.

The independent national charity funds childhood cancer research and relies on community generosity to support scientific studies that will help children with many types of cancer.
Col Reynolds, the charity’s founder and director, was delighted to see that along with player participation, families, friends and fans once again dressed up and donated to support children’s cancer research.

“We are so grateful to the Netball NSW community for getting behind our cause,” Reynolds said. “I want to particularly recognise the 54 associations that were involved in Crazy Hair & Sock Day this year.”

“Since 1993, I’ve been promising parents and children affected by cancer that we won’t give up until we find a cure. Your participation and generosity is making that possible.”

Netball NSW’s Tim Underwood, General Manager Commercial and Corporate Partnerships, said the organisation was delighted to be associated with the charity.

“We cherish our partnership with The Kids’ Cancer Project who do amazing work for a very important cause,” Underwood said. “Our sport is all about community, inclusiveness and helping the next generation succeed, therefore our relationship with the charity is wonderful for our 115,000 registered members all over New South Wales.”

The 2018 season promises to be even more special, as Netball NSW and The Kids’ Cancer Project celebrate 10 years of partnership.

“Over the last decade the netball community has contributed an incredible $245,000” said Reynolds. “These funds have progressed important medical research into kids’ cancer to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for this terrible disease.”

“We’re planning big celebrations for 2018,” Reynolds said. “And as Crazy Hair & Sock Day returns on 16 June we’re going to make it even more meaningful for all involved.”
