This year’s Crazy Hair & Sock Day for The Kids’ Cancer Project (TKCP) is Saturday 23 May!
The NSW Swifts and Netball NSW are encouraging the wider netball community to once again join in the festivities by raising money from crazy fundraising ideas to assist our Official Charity Partner in their fight to cure childhood cancer.
TKCP is a national charity that fundraises to support childhood cancer research. Australia has one of the highest incidences of childhood cancer in the world, with one in 500 kids developing cancer before the age of 15 each year.
Associations and Clubs can host either a ‘crazy hair’ or ‘crazy sock’ day – or come up with their own idea, which doesn’t necessarily need to held on Saturday 23 May. In return, players make a gold coin donation to help bring hope to kids with cancer. Last year, 38 Associations from around NSW took part in a fun-filled day of ‘crazy’ hat, hair and socks at local netball courts, raising an incredible $38,000 for research.
The NSW Swifts will host its official TKCP charity game during the Club’s Round 11 home game against the Adelaide Thunderbirds on 10 May 2015. We are asking fans to come dressed with “crazy hair” and or “crazy socks” to join in the fun, plus help raise important funds through bucket collections on the day.
