Keep warm for a good cause at the 2022 Junior State Championships in June, by purchasing a Beanie for Brain Cancer.
The Mark Hughes Foundation (MHF) will be attending the NSW Junior State Championships in Coffs Harbour from June 1-5, 2022 for their annual Beanie for Brain Cancer fundraiser.
The 2022 MHF beanies will be on sale for $25 at C.ex Stadium from Wednesday June 1, which is not only the first day of competition in Coffs, but the first day of winter.
NSW Oztag encourage players, coaches, spectators and staff to purchase a beanie to help raise funds for greater research into brain cancer.
“Oztag welcomes Mark, Kirralee and their Beanies campaign, to the NSW Junior State Championships in Coffs,” Tournament Director, Bill Harrigan said.
“I urge all players and parents to buy a beanie, or just say hello and make a donation – it feels good to make a difference,” Harrigan said.
After Mark Hughes was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013, he and his wife began the non-profit, Health Promotion Charity, The Mark Hughes Foundation.
The Beanies for Brain Cancer campaign came about as many brain cancer patients wear beanies to cover scars, bandages, loss of hair and just to keep warm.
Eight years on, the MHF has now sold over 900,000 beanies, raised over $24 million and invested millions into research programs.
The Beanies for Brain Cancer campaign continues to grow every year, making a positive impact on the lives of many people affected by brain cancer.
By having the Beanies for Brain Cancer on sale at the Junior State Championships, NSW Oztag hope to raise awareness and funds that provide hope for current brain cancer patients, and those in the future.
Don’t brave the cold weather at this year’s Junior State Championships, buy a Beanie for Brain Cancer.
