 Footy Colours Day

Footy Colours Day was established in 1995 to help fund Fight Cancer Foundation then Bone Marrow Donor Institute's programs including the establishment of the Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry. Since 2005, Fight Cancer Foundation has used funds raised through Footy Colours Day to help young learners continue with their education while they receive treatment for cancer. Each year hundreds of thousands of Australians stand shoulder to shoulder to unite in the fight against cancer by wearing their team's colours with pride throughout September at their school, workplace or club.  Show your true colours and make a difference in the lives of kids and young people living with cancer. Students are encouraged to wear their favourite team’s jersey, shirt, singlet, or simply wear their colours, as the title of the day suggests. Every student who comes in free dress on Friday, is asked to donate a gold coin to this wonderful cause.
