Stepping up to the plate

GO PINK: Dion Kirchner, Cody Anderson, Kelly-Ann Day, Samantha Barry and Tyler Morrison prepare to raise funds for Cancer Council Victoria. Picture: JAYDEN STAPLETON

By Luke Voogt When Kelly-Ann Day and Trevor Elliott don pink to raise money for cancer research, they think of their dad who taught them to love baseball. "It makes me very emotional," Kelly told the Indy. "Baseball to us is our family sport. Because dad loved it, we loved it too." Brian Elliott died of bowel cancer in 2014 and was one of several life members at East Belmont Saints Baseball Club to succumb to cancer. These included former presidents of the Saints and of Deakin Blues Baseball Club, their yearly opponents in the now traditional Pink Day. Trevor came up with the idea when he returned to the club in 2011 after a long absence, Kelly explained. "We suggested it would be better to do it as a club and it just got bigger and better each year." After eight years the event had raised had more than $42,000 for Cancer Council Victoria, Kelly said. She urged anyone interested in supporting the cause to visit www.give.everydayhero.com/au/saints-go-pink-for-cancer-2019.
