    5th Annual Call a Foul on Cancer Pink Whistle Campaign Underway


    The Manitoba Association of Basketball Officials is once again holding its ‘Call A Foul on Cancer’ Pink Whistle campaign this February (5th Annual).  Participating MABO Officials will be wearing ‘Pink Whistles’ from February 1 – 28 to show their support during all levels of basketball in the province.  We would love to surpass last year’s donations!

    Please join the Manitoba Association of Basketball Officials (MABO) as we look to raise funds for the fight against cancer through the 5th Annual ‘Call A Foul On Cancer’ Pink Whistle Campaign in 2015 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’ for the entire month of February (Feb. 1 – 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 and lanyard. Please contact your local high school assignor to donate and order your pink whistle/lanyard before January 30th.  MABO has approved the use of the Pink Whistle during ALL games from February 1-28, 2015
