NSW Police are once again swapping their blue hats for beanies to help raise awareness for brain cancer research.
More than 100 police will join the ‘Beanie for Brain Cancer’ awareness campaign to support the Mark Hughes Foundation.
The rostered officers will wear official police beanies during their shifts at six Sydney NRL games in Round 19 starting tonight (Thursday 25 July 2019).
Funds raised are used to research the cause and treatment for brain cancer in the hope of finding a cure.
NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller APM said police are proud to support the campaign and all those whose lives are affected by cancer.
“Cancer is a deeply personal battle that could be affecting your family, friends or colleagues, and sadly it is a battle the NSW Police Force know all too well,” Commissioner Fuller said.
“Across this round of footy our officers will be out in force wearing beanies to raise awareness for brain cancer research – it’s a simple swap that can make a huge difference.
“We encourage anyone out this weekend supporting their team, to also support our community, by rugging up in a beanie and joining the fight to beat brain cancer,” Commissioner Fuller said.
Since the ‘Beanie from Brain Cancer’ campaign was launched in 2014, the Mark Hughes Foundation has raised more than $2.3 million for brain cancer research.
The community are encouraged to don their own beanie or buy a beanie to support the campaign.
