Perfectly pink for cricket fundraiser
DRESSED in hot pink from head to toe, Cameron Miers was a sight to behold on Friday.
The Dalby State High School Health and Physical Education teacher led both staff and students to follow suit and trade in their usual maroon uniform for their McGrath Foundation Pink Stumps Day ‘Teachers v Students’ cricket match.
The McGrath Foundation is a breast cancer support charity, founded by Australian cricket player Glenn McGrath and his late wife Jane McGrath in 2005 following her diagnosis.
In the week leading up to the match, the school raised money toward the foundation, with the majority of the fundraising taking place at the lunchtime event.
Despite students comfortably defeating the staff team, the match was a great success, with the school comfortable surpassing their $650 goal.
“We’ll still be fundraising throughout this week, but we’ve done the bulk of it and we’ve got around $915 at the moment,” Mr Miers said.
“There are a lot of people I know who have been touched by breast cancer, and being a big cricket fan the McGrath Foundation seemed like a good combination and great way to get involved.”
“The school has been really good with supporting different fundraising events and a lot of teachers and students have helped out.”
