Tackling Lymphoma

Ballarat Falcons put gridiron in limelight for teammate’s fight with lymphoma

On Saturday 15 September - World Lymphoma Awareness Day - the Ballarat Falcons Gridiron Club turned their final home game lime green to support Lymphoma Australia's lymphoma nurse campaign to provide specialist nurses and education. 

Ballarat Gridiron president Casey Marin hoped it could be a chance for people to turn out and enjoy the game, even if they did not know a lot about the sport.

"When our player was diagnosed about two to three months ago, we sat down and thought, let’s actually do something...We want to raise awareness but we also want to do our bit for the foundation,” Ms Marin said.
