Kingston Netball Club's Chloe Pink will be cutting off all her hair to raise funds for the breast cancer network, creating awareness around the work they do during the club's pink round this Saturday.
Chloe's mother, Nicole Pink has recently been through a cancer battle over the last year and is currently in remission.
After watching a friend cut their hair off for a similar cause, Chloe has been inspired to grow her hair out to a length that would be eligible to donate to Cancer Council's Ponytail Project initiative.
The organisation use Chloe's contribution to make wigs, providing them to people who have fallen victim to cancer and other diseases.
Chloe has spent the past 18 months growing her hair, and will be having her hair cut following presentations at the football club on Saturday night.
With help and support from the club and wider community, Chloe as well as her family and friends will be volunteering their time to raise funds through donations - selling raffle tickets and auctioning off donated items during pink/ladies day.
The clubs will also be raising money for the cause through a trading table, selling homemade delicacies throughout the day
People can contribute to the fundraiser through her fundraising page online.
Those wanting to contribute further can purchase tickets from Nicole at the hospital or simply buy one at the entrance gate to the footy.
Nicole mentioned some of the items that will be up for grabs during the auction and raffle.
"We have got a Kingston sunset grazing experience that will be a grazing for 10, four bottles of wine, we have got two tone of wood to auction, a 500 dollar accommodation voucher, there is a pilates class donated from the good country physio and then we have got a heap of other stuff that will go into a raffle."
She emphasised the importance of supporting this fundraising effort, sharing her own experiences battling cancer.
"Having been personally affected over the last year, we realise the importance of the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the McGrath nurses that run out of there."
