The Hume City Broncos and the Broadmeadows Basketball Stadium will turn pink this weekend in support of breast cancer research.

Broncos players will pull on special pink uniforms for the annual pink round in the hope of raising awareness about breast cancer.

The pink round was started in 2013 by a former player who lost her mum to breast cancer. Since then, the Pink Round Committee has continued running the event to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Committee member Effie Tawaf said its members were all passionate about the cause.

“Come along and wear something pink to the games and at the same time get a kick out of watching our manly men strut their stuff in an unfamiliar coloured uniform,” she said.

The pink round, starting on Saturday at 6pm, will also feature food stalls, raffles, face-painting, balloon twisting and performances by local dancers.

Cartoon characters Paw Patrol and Cat Boy from PJ Masks will also put in an appearance.
