Back in purple at the footy

Berri footballer Adam Beauchamp, Living to Beat Cancer (LBC) representatives Cindy Najar, Brenton and Kerry Woolston, Berri player Liam Hayes and Riverland General Hospital’s Cassie Ricketts are gearing up for this month’s Purple Day event to raise money for cancer research. Living to Beat Cancer helped fund one of four chairs for the hospital’s new chemotherapy unit.

Berri Football Club will again don purple guernseys for cancer research in its Fisher Cup clash with Barmera-Monash later this month.
Living to Beat Cancer Riverland and Berri Football Club’s Purple Day on July 26 will coincide with the annual cup match and raise money for cancer research at the Hanson Institute Centre for Cancer Research.
Berri players will wear guernseys sponsored by local businesses which will then be auctioned off at the football club after the game.
Live music and meals will be available from 6pm, and all attendees are encouraged to show their support by wearing purple.
To date, Living to Beat Cancer has raised about $343,000 through its fundraising efforts.
The group helped pay for one of the Riverland General Hospital’s specialised chemotherapy unit chairs.
The unit treated its first patient last month.
