The Pink Test turns 10, as Glenn McGrath and his foundation set a new goal for helping cancer patients

The SCG Pink Test is now part of Australia’s summer of cricket, and Glenn McGrath is eyeing a big fundraising goal well in excess of $1 million for this week’s 10th edition.

Australia and England will complete the Ashes series starting on Thursday at the SCG, with a sea of pink in the stands and on the ground for day three, known as Jane McGrath Day.

To mark the 10th Pink Test, the Australian team donned pink caps at the SCG on Tuesday alongside McGrath, who had plenty to say about the most important week of the year for the McGrath Foundation.

The foundation was started in 2005, following his first wife Jane’s initial diagnosis with breast and bone cancer. She went into remission, but the cancer returned and she died in 2008, aged 42.
