Footy Colours Day – Friday September 6
This is the one day in September to have fun and help young people living with cancer.
Football is about spirit, strength, courage and the fight to win. Those touched by cancer share a similar journey and need the same strength and courage to win their individual fight. Each year thousands of Australians unite, wear their favourite footy colours and make a donation to give young Aussies living with cancer a brighter future through the Fight Cancer Back on Track program.
It’s a great opportunity to help minimise the impact and disruption cancer has on a young person’s life by helping them to stay connected with their schools and friends. The Fight Cancer Back on Track program enables the young students to keep in touch during long absences through treatment and recovery and continue to strive to reach their full potential.
Footy Colours Day Ambassadors Sydney Swans co-captain Kieren Jack, former Sydney FC’s Adam Griffiths and NRL’s Adam Blair from Wests Tigers have teamed up to support Footy Colours Day 2013.
Footy Colours Day is supported nationally by Australian companies, individuals and schools. We encourage all Australians to get into the spirit of Footy Colours Day this year and have fun by wearing their favourite team’s colours, organising a footy breakfast or morning tea, decorate the office or classroom, have a casual day, fashion parade, footy trivia competition, treasure hunt, art competition or any other fun way to enjoy Footy Colours Day and support young Aussies living with cancer when they need it most.
