On the 19th of July the Bradford Bulls are turning the stadium red to stand out for cancer. Fans are being asked to attend the game in red clothing and a number of red activities will be happening around the stadium.
 
This is to make an impact and raise awareness of the Eve Appeal, which is a charity that is raising funds for research of gynaecological cancers at the same time as increasing awareness of the illness. With a shocking mortality rate of 41% and with some symptoms hard to spot we need to get the message regarding these cancers, and importance of regular screenings out there.
 
Kate Hardcastle, non-executive director at the bulls says:
 
“With women making up 40% of the fan base at the Bradford Bulls it is vital to use this opportunity to get the message about gynaecological cancers heard loud and clear. 19,000 women will be diagnosed this year with gynaecological cancer. 7,500 of these women will not survive. We need to stress the importance of regular screenings and do our bit to ensure ground breaking research of the condition continues.”
 
Bulls star Robbie Hunter – Paul said:
 
“I hope we can all wear something red for the game against Hull on Friday.  Cancer is a terrible disease and cancer in women robs children of their mothers at a far too young age. By assisting the Eve appeal we can all hopefully raise awareness of fundraising to help find a much needed cure for this killer disease.”
 
The Bradford Bulls are getting behind the cause to raise awareness, not only for women to be aware of the symptoms but to the men to be there to support, help and encourage the women who may be diagnosed.
 
A collection will be taking place on the night of the match. You can also donate to the Eve Appeal by texting EVEA99 followed by the amount you wish to donate to 70070.
