Every year the SCG turns into a sea of pink thanks to the support of the crowd who come to watch some of the world’s greatest cricketers in action.
What is the NRMA Insurance Pink Test?
The McGrath Foundation is the official charity partner of the NRMA Insurance Pink Test. Since 2009, Cricket Australia, SCG and the McGrath Foundation have worked together to make the NRMA Insurance Pink Test one of the biggest charitable sporting events in the world. Thanks to the generosity of the cricket community over the last 14 years, the NRMA Insurance Pink Test has helped raise more than $17 million to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses across Australia.
What is the McGrath Foundation?
The McGrath Foundation has become one Australia’s most recognised and respected charities since Jane and Glenn McGrath’s very public experience with breast cancer. When Jane was diagnosed with cancer for a second time, she had the support of a breast care nurse, who both empowered and comforted her, and her family. This experience set the mission for the Foundation, which has become an enduring commitment: to ensure every family experiencing breast cancer has the support of a Breast Care Nurse, no matter where they live – for free.
Currently, there are 193 McGrath Breast Care Nurses who help individuals and their families experiencing breast cancer by providing physical, psychological and emotional support. From diagnosis and throughout treatment, highly-qualified nurses are there to help. While over 118,000 families have been supported since 2005, more nurses are needed to meet the growing rate of breast cancer diagnosis in Australia.
How Sanctum is taking part
This upcoming Pink Test will be an unforgettable experience as Australia take on South Africa in 2023! January 4 - 8, 2023. Traditionally Ladies’ Day is day 3 of the Sydney Pink Test, and it has been renamed Jane McGrath Day in honour of Jane. On this day, the iconic Jane McGrath High Tea fundraiser will be held, and guests will be treated with a Sanctum Moisturiser in their goodie bag.
