The Brisbane Heat and Queensland Cricket have marked today’s Teal Ribbon Day – an annual day of awareness and support for Australians living with ovarian cancer.

The Brisbane Heat club have been proud partners with Ovarian Cancer Australia since 2014, with today’s national milestone a part of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.

Brisbane Heat players in the Weber Women’s Big Bash League and KFC Big Bash League displayed their zeal for teal by wearing teal ribbons on the playing apparel during some matches in their respective competitions this summer.

Queensland Cricket CEO Terry Svenson said the Heat continued to make a difference to the lives of Australian women by championing the goals of Ovarian Cancer Australia and raising vital funds for treatment, research, and support.

“Ovarian Cancer Australia has been a great partner of Queensland Cricket and the Brisbane Heat for a number of years and we’re proud to make our contribution to a day like Teal Ribbon Day that helps put the spotlight on ovarian cancer symptoms and awareness,’’ he said.

“We are pleased for the Brisbane Heat and QC to again be able to raise much-needed funds and awareness for the many Australian women living with ovarian cancer.” 

“The amount of $15,469.13 that we have donated this year will continue to assist Ovarian Cancer Australia to deliver the vital work they do to benefit women and families throughout Queensland and Australia.”

Queensland Cricket have participated in several community and club fund-raising events in regional Queensland throughout the year, including a successful ‘Teal Heels’ function at the Harrup Park Country Club in Mackay during the WBBL festival round last year.

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest female cancer in Australia with a 46% survival rate.
