Johannesburg – Lions Cricket would like to acknowledge and celebrate International Women’s Day, the global day whereby we commemorate the achievements of women whether it be political, cultural or socioeconomic.

Lions Cricket Head of Commercial, Communications and Marketing, Wanele Mngomezulu says that the day is about celebrating our Imbokodos especially those suffering with breast cancer;

“As we approach our much-valued 10th edition of the Betway Pink ODI on 20 March at Imperial Wanderers Stadium, we take today to thank the women in our lives, acknowledge their achievements, huge hearts, determination and love. We think especially of those suffering with breast cancer and hope that come Sunday 20 March we can raise funds and show our unwavering support for each and every individual.”

Pink Day is the day the Proteas men’s cricket team dress in pink and play a One-Day International in support of breast cancer awareness.

“It’s a day where we celebrate the human spirit to overcome breast cancer. It’s a day when survivors, family, friends and cricket fans young and old, dress up and pledge pink in support of breast cancer sufferers and their families”.

“A day where we raise awareness and money for the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital Breast Care Clinic, who work tirelessly every day to beat it. A day that we remember, joyously, the brave people who died from breast cancer” concludes Mngomezulu.
