The St George Illawarra Dragons will use the Women in League Round match against the Canberra Raiders at WIN Stadium, Wollongong this Sunday to highlight the Club’s association with the Joanne Mackay Breast Cancer Foundation.
The Foundation is in honour of the wife of former St George, Illawarra, St George Illawarra, NSW and Australian representative Brad Mackay who sadly lost his wife to breast cancer.
Dragons Head Coach Paul McGregor has named an unchanged 17-man team who competed against the South Sydney Rabbitohs for the fixture with the team to wear pink socks in recognition of the Joanne Mackay Breast Cancer Foundation.
The Dragons will be looking to make it two wins in a row against the Canberra Raiders this season after coming from 0-18 to defeat to record the team’s first victory of the season.
The Joanne Mackay Breast Cancer Foundation is a long-term Dragons charity that focuses on the fundamental and emotional needs of patients and their families during the treatment of breast cancer.
The Foundation will facilitate several activities in and around the venue on game day to raise donations including a bucket collection which take place around the venue as well as several stalls where official scarves and other paraphernalia will be available for purchase.
Additionally, representatives from the Foundation will join students from St Mary’s College in forming an on-field guard of honour for the players when they take to the field prior to kick-off.
