A McGrath Foundation Fundraiser
The Devonport Strikers are please to announce that we will once again be partnering with the McGrath Foundation for our annual Pink Day. Held on the 10th of July. The Devonport Strikers will be celebrating the McGrath Foundation & collecting donations throughout out the match day as our NPL, WSL and Northern Championship teams take on Glenorchy Knights FC, Taroona FC and Somerset FC respectively.
The Pink Day theme will continue into the night with proceeds from our ‘Dress to Impress’ function supporting the McGrath Foundation.
What does the mcgrath foundation do?
The McGrath Foundation funds McGrath Breast Care Nurses who support individuals and their families experiencing breast cancer. The nurses provide physical, psychological and emotional support from the time of diagnosis, throughout treatment.
Support is available for anyone with breast cancer, whether you’re in public or private care. Our McGrath Breast Care Nurses provide care and support for early or metastatic breast cancer.
No referral is required. Simply use our Find A Nurse Map and give your nearest nurse a call.
Support is absolutely free. Thanks to the generous donations from the community, corporate partners and the government there is nothing to pay and nothing to claim back.

“The reassurance and helpful advice my McGrath Breast Care Nurse gave me at each step has been magnificent. I don’t know how I would have survived mentally and physically without Michelle’s cheery visits and phone calls each week.”
“My McGrath Breast Care Nurse helped me break down the barriers of understanding and doubt at every stage of my breast cancer experience. I always feel confident knowing that Helen is a phone call away. She makes me feel safe.”
