On Saturday 11 June, Trinity College will commence its inaugural Pink Sock Day to support the McGrath Foundation's Pull on Your Socks initiative. This event will see all Year 11 and 12 students representing Trinity wearing pink socks in their sporting fixtures against Scotch College.

Pull On Your Socks provides an opportunity to raise money to fund McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities nationally and to increase breast cancer awareness in young Australians.

According to McGrath Foundation Ambassador and Director Tracy Bevan, Pull On Your Socks will play a vital role in achieving the Foundation's mission of ensuring every family impacted by breast cancer has access to a dedicated breast care nurse, no matter where they live or their financial situation.

Through Pink Sock Day, Trinity hopes to educate young men to demonstrate a greater awareness and appreciation towards women's health, and most importantly, raise money to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia. This event has been organised by Trinity College Head Prefect, Lochie Taylor (12.3), who said “As well as raising funds and awareness for the McGrath Foundation, my aim is to support women's health, focusing on our mothers and all the women who encourage us through school and life in general.”
