Sea Eagles challenge for Breast Cancer
Watch the video of the boys turning pink
Manly Sea Eagles players Glenn Stewart, Michael Robertson and Glenn Hall have died their facial growth pink for Saturday's Women in League clash with Penrith at CUA Stadium.
The Sea Eagles players sent out a message today for sponsors, members and supporters to accept the challenge.
Sea Eagles star winger Dave Williams missed out on his go today after the boys used up all the pink dye, but the Wolfman will be back on Friday for his special treatment.
"The Panthers are playing in pink jerseys and we thought we could join in the fun by dying our beards and moes pink for the occasion - at a price, " Williams said.
"It will be an excellent way to promote awareness of the problem which affects so many women in our community."
"I don't mind making a goose of myself if it can raise money for such a cause, " Williams said.
Test forward Glenn Stewart was first to come forward with the idea which was backed by his team mates and then supported by coach Des Hasler and CEO Grant Mayer.
Mayer said the Sea Eagles were keen to support the Penrith Panthers who had shown great initiative in taking a Pink approach to Saturday's big game.
"They have been outstanding in promoting the match and we are pleased to play a supporting role. Our team will be involved with the Panthers in a team photo opportunity at the ground at 5:55 pm and we are looking for sponsors, members and fans to raise $15,000 to support the cause" Mr Mayer said.
