With a different, limited edition collectable sock each year, every dollar raised will help the McGrath Foundation fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities’ right across Australia and increase breast awareness in young people.
“Whether you’re into athletics, tennis, netball, hockey, basketball, football, AFL, union or league; don our McGrath Foundation Pink Socks and host a fundraising event to become part of one giant team having fun while helping ensure more families can access our amazing McGrath Breast Care Nurses,” said McGrath Foundation Ambassador & Director, Tracy Bevan.
Australian sporting heroes including Lleyton Hewitt, Ellyse Perry, Wendell Sailor, Billy Slater and Jamie Dwyer, to name a few, have come together from all codes and are asking clubs and teams across Australia to #pullonyoursocks and show their support for the McGrath Foundation.
With 43 people diagnosed with breast cancer each day, the McGrath Foundation is encouraging communities across the country to follow the lead of these famous sports stars by purchasing their team socks as well as hosting a fundraising event to help support families experiencing breast cancer.
"Last year we had over 200 Pull On Your Socks events across Australia and this year we anticipate even more codes stepping up and getting their clubs involved within local communities,” said Tracy.
Put your best foot forward this winter and purchase your collectable pair of McGrath Foundation pink socks. To find out how you can get involved and make a difference, please visit www.mcgrathfoundation.com.au.

World Diabetes Day is an annual event held worldwide on 14th November every year. Light up your front porch or workplace with a blue light to show your support for the 371 million people living with diabetes.
Thursday 14 November celebrates World Diabetes Day (WDD); an annual campaign, held on the same date every year and led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and its member associations. It engages millions of people worldwide in diabetes advocacy and awareness. The theme for this year's WDD is Diabetes Education and Prevention. For more information about the IDF's international campaign, click here, and for merchandise available through the IDF website, click here.
At a local level, you can show your support for your family and friends living with diabetes by lighting your front porch with a blue light on 14 November. (If you don't already have a blue light globe, they are widely available from all good light retailers, and are generally inexpensive). Diabetes WA will be showcasing your efforts to turn Perth blue on their social media pages, so please email your photos to [email protected]
It is critical that the impact diabetes has on the Western Australian community is continually highlighted, and initiatives such as lighting up buildings or your own home are simple but effective ways of drawing attention to diabetes and the fact that tens of thousands of people live with type 1 and type 2 diabetes every day.
Diabetes is our nation’s fastest growing chronic disease and unless action is taken now, it is expected to overtake heart disease and cancer to become the largest cause of disability and premature death in Australia.
Some good news is that type 2 diabetes can be prevented through positive lifestyle changes. In fact, the risk of developing type 2 diabetes can be reduced by up to 60% by maintaining a healthy weight, being physically active and following a healthy eating plan.
Diabetes is a condition that cannot be ignored, but sadly, there are many people within our community that have diabetes without knowing it.
In fact, it is estimated that for every diagnosed case of type 2 diabetes, there is another that goes undiagnosed and untreated. Diagnosis and appropriate management is paramount: research has shown that if people with diabetes can manage their diabetes well, the risks of complications are greatly reduced and may be either prevented or significantly delayed.
