    Call A Foul On Cancer Pink Whistle Campaign

    The Manitoba Association of Basketball Officials (MABO) is kicking off it's inaugural  'Call A Foul On Cancer’ Pink Whistle Campaign in 2011.

    Please join us and the Manitoba Association of Basketball Officials (MABO) as we look to raise funds for the fight against cancer through the 'Call A Foul On Cancer’ Pink Whistle Campaign in 2011 by asking you and your friends to consider a small donation to our cause.

    The 'Call A Foul On Cancer’ Pink Whistle Campaign strives to raise funds for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.  Participating MABO Officials will be wearing ‘Pink Whistles’ from February 14 – 28 to show their support during all levels of basketball in the province.

    With your help and generosity, our donations through this campaign help fund cancer research, patient care, and treatments in Manitoba.  Each year, more and more Manitoba men, women, and children are winning their battles against the disease with the aid of CancerCare Manitoba oncologists, nurses, radiation therapists, and allied health care workers.  Knowing that 1 in 3 Manitobans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, it’s distressing to think that the disease will most likely affect a loved one or close friend.  Together we can help Manitobans living with cancer and relieve the effects on those individuals and their families!

    For those interested MABO officials, we are asking for a minimum donation of a full game fee (or more!), which includes your very own Fox40 Pink Whistle.  Please contact your local assignor to donate and order your pink whistle before January 28th.  MABO has approved the use of the Pink Whistle during ALL games from February 14-28, 2011.

    If you’re not a MABO official, but would still like to donate…you may do so online by clicking on this link: Call A Foul On Cancer, or by visiting www.cancercarefdn.mb.ca, clicking the ‘Donate Now’ button and selecting the 'Call A Foul On Cancer' link from the left side of page.  Alternatively, you may call the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation office at 204-787-4143.  

    Canadian tax receipts will be issued in your name for all donations over $10.00.

    Thanks for your support & consideration!
