BCNA Ambassadors and Events Champions

This year families and groups of friends from BCNA’s network across Australia will gather in Melbourne attend the annual Pink Lady Match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Although 2024 is not a 'Field of Women' year with this  event signified by when BCNA is able to have 10,000 people access and stand on the  MCG  before the Pink Lady Match. Field of Women is held every 3-4 years.

This year we celebrate the longest standing charity themed round for the AFL acknowledging our  20 year partnership between Melbourne Football Club and Breast Cancer Network Australia. This annual round aims to raise awareness of the impact of breast cancer while paying tribute to all those diagnosed and affected by a loved one's diagnosis.
