The Bendigo Thunder hosts Whitehorse at the QEO on Sunday from 3pm.

SUNDAY’S game will be about much more than just four points for the Bendigo Thunder in round eight of the Northern Football League women’s competition.

Sunday’s match at the QEO against Whitehorse is being billed as “Pink Day at the Q” in support of breast cancer awareness.

The Thunder will wear pink socks, pink armbands and use a pink football.

“It’s a big cause to try to support given most people know somebody who has been or is going through breast cancer,” Thunder coach Cherie O’Neill said.

“It’s fantastic that we are able to do our little bit to raise awareness and show support.”

The Thunder goes into Sunday’s match undefeated at 7-0, with the team including Yasmin Colley playing her first senior game for the club.

It’s fantastic that we are able to do our little bit to raise awareness and show support.
