‘Sixers Can, You Can’, supporting youth cancer patients across regional New South Wales
Sony Foundation Australia and Sydney Sixers are proud to partner for the 9th annual 'Sixers Can, You Can' campaign, raising funds and awareness for 'You Can'.
During the 2019/2020 Big Bash League season, the Sydney Sixers community will help make a difference to the lives of youth cancer patients and their families who have to travel to Sydney from Regional and rural areas for cancer treatment.
Every $100 raised will cover a night of accommodation at the new for a regional patient and their family!
'Support 'Sixers Can, You Can'
During the Big Bash League season the Sydney Sixers WBBL and BBL squads will don special jerseys honouring youth cancer patients and survivors, at two dedicated You Can matches throughout the 2019/2020 season.
These one-off jerseys will be emblazoned with three powerful words of inspiration drawn upon by youth cancer patients across Australia, will be signed by the Sixers player who wore the jersey during the You Can match!
WBBL You Can Match - Saturday October 19, 2019
BBL You Can Match - Wednesday December 18, 2019
With only limited jerseys available
Sixers fans can also support youth cancer patients by making a one-off tax deductible donation!
“The hardest part about being away from home for Jacob and I was missing family and
friends. Travel up and back to Prince of Wales Hospital, Randwick was around 2 hours
each way. It was too far away for his mates to come and visit, so on chemo days it was just
him and I. I left my full time job as an early childhood educator to care for Jacob. During
that time I used up all my annual leave, long service and sick leave and I also took leave
without pay. We took out a loan to cover unexpected expenses of more than $15,000 for
travelling and accommodation during that year.”
