Pink Day

About Pink Day

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 in pink in support of breast cancer sufferers and their families.

It’s 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. It’s also the day that we remember, joyously, the brave people who died from breast cancer.

In fact, Pink Day and dressing up in pink has become so synonymous with the cause that wherever, whenever you “Pitch Up In Pink” you’re doing your bit.

Since 2011 the Proteas have lost ONE Pink Day One-Day International match.

What’s more, many records have been broken by Proteas on the day – it must have something to do with the fans pitching up in pink.
