Call To Arms - Cancer Council - Help Us Tackle Cancer
One in two men will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85 – it could be you, a colleague, friend or family member.
Every year, there are approximately 12,000 Queensland men diagnosed with cancer and around 4,000 men die from the disease. Call To Arms aims to raise funds and awareness for men’s cancers by encouraging sporting teams to wear a yellow armband for a gold coin donation per player during a match.
The official month for Call To Arms is July, but you can hold a match any time throughout your season. We are asking players from all codes and all levels to take part in Call To Arms. It’s easy, and can help attract even more spectators to your match as well as saves lives.
To register, visit www.calltoarms.com.au or phone 1300 65 65 85
By participating in Call To Arms, you will not only raise vital funds for men’s cancers but you will also help men in your community think about what they can do to prevent cancer. Remember when it comes to cancer we are all on the same team.
Please pass this on to anyone you know who is in a sporting team.
