Our magic partner

28 March 2020

The Waikato Breast Cancer Research Trust are proud to be the Official Charity Partner of the Waikato Bay of Plenty Magic Netball Team and Netball Waikato Bay of Plenty. 

We love having the BEST netball players in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty supporting the work we do, and they are great role models to encourage everyone to be active. Research shows that regular exercise reduces the risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer, and also reduces the risk of breast cancer recurrence after diagnosis. 

Sadly the decision has been made, due to COVID-19, to suspend the ANZ Premisership competition and the upcoming netball season. We’re saddened for all the players and team as we’re passionate about netball and will miss watching the team playing. Captain Sam Winders beautifully said though that “now is the time for resilience and reflecting on the health of our people.” and the WBCRT couldn’t agree more.
