#PlayinPurple AFL

Join us in purple this July!

#PlayinPurple AFL

#PlayinPurple, the nationwide awareness campaign that sees footy clubs turn purple for pancreatic cancer, is back for 2024, bigger and better than ever- 20/21 July and 27/28 July.

Since 2015, #PlayinPurple has been uniting clubs, players, and the broader community to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer.

With more than 35,000 players pulling on their purple socks, we have raised over $500,000 for vital pancreatic cancer research.

Getting involved couldn't be easier - by simply swapping your club socks for PanKind purple socks on one weekend of the season, you're helping to raise awareness that a healthy lifestyle, social connection, and exercise can reduce the risk of cancer.

The success of #PlayinPurple is thanks to everyone involved and determined to make a difference.
