Time to Sock It To Sarcoma!

Friday, June 7, 2019 - 12:56 PM

The Annual West Australian Sarcoma Awareness Week to create community awareness about sarcoma, primary bone and soft tissue tumours is being held this year from starting Monday 1st July.

WA Football will help launch WA Sarcoma Awareness Week in 2019 with Odd Socks Round and the Annual Kalin Foley Cup.

WA Football’s involvement in WA Sarcoma Awareness Week aims to raise awareness of Sarcomas and raise funds for Sarcoma research in Western Australia. WA Football has a reason close to home to be involved, with Kalin’s diagnosis arising following injury in a local football game.

Football players are encouraged to join and support the event by wearing odd socks on Friday 28th, Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June with local players asked to donate a gold coin donation to be collected by Team Managers/Club Officials. Players are encouraged to wear one of their club/team socks accompanied by an odd sock on the other foot – joining the Sock it to Sarcoma! theme.

As part of WA Sarcoma Awareness Week and with the blessing of Kalin’s parents Paul and Brigitte the West Perth Football District, Wanneroo Junior Football Club and Ocean Ridge Junior Football Club will again run the annual Kalin Foley Cup, at match honoring Kalin Foley; this year at Wanneroo Showgrounds on June 30.

On Friday 28th, Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June - have some fun, pull on a pair of odd socks for your footy match and donate to a great cause, helping us Sock it to Sarcoma!
