greetings all!


This year's Call To Arms game is against Sydney on Friday 16th May.  Volunteers help out before the game from 5pm, collecting donations for Cancer Council Victoria and promoting the Call To Arms message of cancer awareness in men.

See you there :)

Just wanted to highlight some of the activities happening around the Call to Arms game tonight


- There will be marquees set up around the ground to sell yellow slap bands and take donations on the way into the stadium


- Nearly every seat in Etihad will have a yellow card, where people can write the name of someone they know who has been affected by cancer.  Volunteers will be on hand with pens to help people fill these out.




- At approx 7.35pm, everyone will be prompted to stand as one and hold their cards as a sign of respect and solidarity


- The players will be wearing the special jumpers with the yellow arm bands, and these will be auctioned off after the game will all proceeds going to Cancer Council Victoria.
