Concord Junior Soccer Club is proud to support this amazing cause.
What began as a social awareness campaign in 2015, has grown to be a visually empowering campaign that shoots Pancreatic Cancer front and centre into footballing communities.
The #goingpurpleforpancreatic cancer campaign is entering its fourth year, and truly is making waves in local Football NSW club communities. Avner Governor, Isabella DiManno, started this campaign to raise awareness and necessary funds of Pancreatic Cancer research when her fiancé’s mother was diagnosed with the disease in 2014. In under four years the campaign has raised close to $40,000 for research with the ambition to keep on raising more. “By changing your club football socks to Purple Avner socks, we are shooting for change together, to lift the social profile of Pancreatic Cancer and raise funds for desperately needed research. The campaign unites communities through active participation and acts as a positive talking point between people who might not necessarily know the outcome of Pancreatic Cancer,” Ms DiManno states.
It's not too late for Concord to get on board and participate.
The allocated weekend for us to support this campaign and foundation is on the weekend of the 26th and 27th of May.
Every dollar donated goes 100% into research.
