Silverware up for grabs

Injury Update | Round 14 Head of Football Andrew McKay brings you all the latest injury news ahead of Round 14.

OLD foes Carlton and Collingwood will join forces this weekend to raise awareness for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation.

The Blues and Pies will go head-to-head at the MCG this Sunday 24 June, with both teams vying for the Peter Mac Cup – Carlton currently holds the ledger with 14 wins.

Now in its 26th year, the Peter Mac Cup is the longest-running charity match in VFL/AFL history and since its inception in 1993, has raised more than $1 million for vital cancer research.

Peter Mac is one of the world’s leading cancer research, education and treatment centres, and is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to caring for people affected by cancer.

This year the Foundation is calling on supporters to take part in its ‘Unite to Fight Cancer’ event, with participants riding, running, or walking to make a life-saving difference for people with cancer.

The event will take place on Sunday 28 October, with funds raised helping Peter Mac accelerate the discovery of cancer cures.

Since 2009, Collingwood’s home game against Carlton has been dedicated to the Peter Mac Cup, while the Blues’ home game against the Pies has traditionally been played for the Richard Pratt Cup.

Make sure you head to the ‘G on Sunday afternoon and give your spare change to the tin rattlers outside the ground, while all the action in the stadium kicks off at 3:20pm.
