    6th Annual Call a Foul on Cancer Pink Whistle Campaign Underway



    The Manitoba Association of Basketball Officials is once again holding its 6th annual ‘Call A Foul on Cancer’ Pink Whistle campaign this February.  Participating MABO Officials will be wearing ‘Pink Whistles’ for the full month of February to show their support during all levels of basketball in the province.  We would love to surpass last year’s donations!

    Please join the Manitoba Association of Basketball Officials (MABO) as we look to raise funds for the fight against cancer through the 6th Annual ‘Call A Foul On Cancer’ Pink Whistle Campaign in 2016 by asking you and your friends to consider a small donation to our cause.


    The ‘Call A Foul On Cancer’ Pink Whistle Campaign strives to raise funds for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.  Participating MABO Officials will be wearing ‘Pink Whistles’ for the month of  February  to show their support during all levels of basketball in the province.


    With your help and generosity, our donations through this campaign help fund cancer research, patient care, and treatments in Manitoba.  Each year, more and more Manitoba men, women, and children are winning their battles against the disease with the aid of CancerCare Manitoba oncologists, nurses, radiation therapists, and allied health care workers.  Knowing that 1 in 3 Manitobans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, it’s distressing to think that the disease will most likely affect a loved one or close friend.  Together we can help Manitobans living with cancer and relieve the effects on those individuals and their families!

    For those interested MABO officials, we are asking for a minimum donation of a full game fee  which includes your very own Fox40 Pink Whistle and lanyard.  Please contact your local assignor to donate and order your pink whistle/lanyard before January 28th.  MABO has approved the use of the Pink Whistle during ALL games from February 1st -29th, 2016.

    If you’re not a MABO official, but would still like to donate…you may do so online by visiting http://www.cancercarefdn.mb.ca, and clicking the ‘Donate Now’ button, and selecting GENERAL DONATION.  Please make sure to write “Call a Foul” in the comment box, or your donation will not be credited to the event.

    Alternatively, you may call the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation office at 204-787-4177 to make your donation. Thank you for your support.

    Canadian tax receipts will be issued in your name for all donations over $15.00.
