Collingwood Magpies Netball is pleased to welcome aboard the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Research Institution (ONJCRI) as our round three, match-day community partner.

The ONJCRI, along with Collingwood’s support, are committed to #winovercancer.

Magpies defender and Australian Diamond April Brandley is an ONJCRI ambassador this year, and after losing her mum to breast cancer when she was 15 years old, is dedicated to helping others fight this disease.

Make sure you get down to the game on Saturday to show your support, and you might even catch a glimpse of the international superstar and breast cancer survivor herself, Olivia Newton-John, who will be in attendance at the Magpies-Thunderbirds game!

ONJCRI researchers and clinicians work together every day to discover and develop research breakthroughs to deliver better health outcomes for patients.

You too can make a difference. Head to the ONJCRI Facebook to donate now.
