Jane McGrath Foundation’s 10th anniversary turns SCG pink

The Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) became a sea of pink during the third Test between Australia and West Indies. The occasion was Jane McGrath Foundation’s 10th anniversary, and only pink was visible as far as the eye could see.

For the past seven years, the New Year’s Test in Australia is known as the “Pink Test” and day three is observed as the Jane McGrath Day, in honour of Glenn McGrath’s late wife who died of breast cancer in 2008. The objective of setting up the foundation was simply to raise awareness for breast cancer.

On this occasion, Gurnam Singh (President, Swamy Army) and Manu Singh (Vice-President, Swamy Army) decided to turn up in pink coloured traditional attire. Both came wearing pink coloured ‘sherwani’, ‘stole’ and pink ‘turban’. Their presence in the stands was a sight to behold and added new dimension to the cause.
