Capilano Rugby Club putting on pink this Saturday

Annual event raises money for breast cancer research

Capilano Rugby Club will hold its eighth annual Pink Day this Saturday, Oct. 19, with fundraising in play all day to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research as a full slate of games hit the fields at Klahanie Park.

Players from the club's premier men’s and women’s teams will wear special pink jerseys for their matches. The jerseys were each paid for with a $100 donation from a club supporter and they are customized with names of loved ones or special messages in the fight against breast cancer. All of the club’s teams will be wearing pink socks for their games this Saturday.
