MABO is extremely proud and excited to announce that our 2nd Annual 'Call A Foul on Cancer' Pink Whistle campaign raised a Grand Total of $4,707.  MABO officials contributed $4,282 of this total, with an extra $425 donated from family and friends directly to CancerCare Manitoba via the website.

The ‘Call A Foul On Cancer’ Pink Whistle Campaign set out to raise funds for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation by  having participating MABO Officials wear ‘Pink Whistles’ from February 1 – 14 to show their support during all levels of basketball in the province, from Junior High to University.  Officials who contributed a full game fee or more received a pink whistle to proudly wear during the approved time frame.

MABO would like to thank and acknowledge a fellow basketball official from British Columbia, Mr. Karn Dhillon, and the B.C. Basketball Officials Association for originating this wonderful campaign a couple of years ago and providing us with all their support.

We would also like to thank Nicola Starin at CancerCare Manitoba Foundation for her support and assistance in helping us with this campaign once again!

Last, but certainly not least, we would like to thank all of our officials and those who contributed online for their wonderful support during this campaign!

MABO looks forward to continuing this annual event as our way to create awareness for the fight against this terrible disease.
