Standard Bank as the the proud sponsor of the Men’s Proteas team in all three formats of the game, ODI, T20, Test, is excited to join forces with Cricket South Africa in support of the team’s campaign in raising funds and driving awareness for the breast cancer.
PINK DAY taking place on the 10th February 2017, is about celebrating human spirit to overcome breast cancer and supporting those individuals who have been diagnosed. Survivors, friends, families and cricket fans will #PitchUpInPink at the Bidvest Wanderers Stadium, on Saturday the 10th February 2018 for the One Day International 2017/18 - ODI South Africa vs. India. The game will commence at 13:00, where Standard Bank will donate R10000.00 (ten thousand rands) towards the Breast Cancer Unit at the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital for every wicket taken by the Standard Bank Proteas.
On the day there will be activations by Standard Bank and other sponsors, and Standard Bank invites fans attending the match to participate in the most fun full pink Facebook Filter. The Filter will allow fans to take a selfie of themselves dressed in a Pink Proteas kit, and can either save or share the photo on social media using the #PitchUpInPink hashtag in support of the Pink Day initiative and to those who have suffered breast cancer. This is the most unique initiative aimed at assisting to raise awareness and funding to fight breast cancer.
