The St Anthony’s Pink Panthers are a group of Year 7 students who played in the U12 division of the Red Rooster Touch Tournament held on 5th and 6th November 2011 at the Rockhampton Touch Association.
Working with us, these young boys dedicated the weekend to raising funds for breast cancer. Local business Buddy’s Fire Sales & Services sponsored the Pink Panthers $5.00 for every try scored and the Rockhampton Touch Association kicked started their fundraising with a $50.00 donation.
Looking “pretty in pink”, with profits from the purchase of their socks also going towards their fundraising efforts, the Pink Panthers scored a very impressive 30 tries over the weekend in tough Rocky summer conditions. Walking the fields with their breast cancer buckets they received donations of over $580.00! Buddy’s Fire Sales & Services continued their generous support with another $155.00 donation helping the St Anthony’s Pink Panthers to raise an amazing $1,000.00.
A great achievement for these young boys with the help of such wonderful community spirit!
Post note – with this final amount coming in, Play for a Cure Foundation has raised over $2100 for Breast Cancer Awareness during the month of October and the first week of November.
