Blues Wear It Pink
Everton's support for breast cancer awareness day.
Everton's players let their feet do the talking this week to show their support for national 'Wear It Pink' day.
Every member of Roberto Martinez's playing squad donned pink socks, donated by Nike, to promote Friday's event, which aims to raise awareness and funds for the charity Breast Cancer Campaign.
Last year, £2.1 million was raised by Wear It Pink supporters - money which goes directly towards funding world-class, life-saving research across the UK and Ireland.
Fans can text PINK to 70907 to donate £2 today.
Breast cancer is still the most common cancer and every year it claims the lives of 12,000 women with 50,000 more diagnosed.
“We were really pleased to be able to do our bit to support breast cancer awareness," said Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard. "It affects so many families all over the world and helping to raise awareness, which hopefully leads to more funding for life-saving research, is so important.”
Employees at Everton will also be demonstrating their support for the campaign by dressing in pink this Friday.
The Wear It Pink activity concludes the Blues' support for breast cancer awareness month, which also saw club captain Phil Jagielka host a special ladies lunch at the Hilton, Liverpool, in aid of two local breast cancer charities which had treated and helped two female members of staff to beat breast cancer in recent years.
Everton Football Club, through its official charity Everton in the Community, is committed to supporting local and national charitable initiatives. For more information about Everton in the Community, click here.
