In the pink: Sharks will wear special jerseys to support Cansa in Durban Free State clash

2010-09-17 00:00

THE Sharks will go pink on Saturday when they face the Free State Cheetahs in the Currie Cup match at King’s Park.

The Sharks have thrown their weight behind Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA) and will wear pink and black jerseys for the match.

“The Sharks will undergo a complete makeover for the game with limited edition jerseys and the motto ‘black and pink, it really matters’,” said Michael Ablett, marketing manager of the Sharks.

“All spectators attending the game, regardless of who they are supporting, are encouraged to wear pink. CANSA celebrates women’s health in September and October but funds raised at the match will go towards all forms of cancer research and patient support,” he added.

Coach John Plumtree and the players have been enthusiastic supporters of the project.

“It’s a great initiative,” said Plumtree yesterday. “It’s a subject close to a lot of people’s hearts in this organisation.

“It’s a very worthy cause and deserves the support of everyone.”
