This weekend is going to be a busy and exciting one for NSW cricketers, with the Breakers girls involved in a Suicide Prevention event at Maroubra on Saturday and the Blues squad participating in a run on Sunday to support Neuroblastoma.
The Breakers are trying to raise $500 to cover the cost of a sponsored singlet for their treadmill run, which is part of the Plebs, Pros and Personalities for Suicide Prevention Australia (PPP4SPA 24hr Treadmill Marathon. All proceeds will go to Suicide Prevention Australia.
In addition to taking shifts running on the treadmill, the players will be running skills clinics, fun games and giveaways.

The Blues players are getting behind a fundraising appeal organised by Karina Haddin (wife of Brad) for neuroblastoma childhood cancer.
The Neuroblastoma Run 2 Cure comprises of two fun runs – a 10k and a 5k as well as a 1km fun walk which is for children five and under with family.
The 5k and 10k fun runs start in the Domain and go around Mrs.Macquarie’s Chair providing some stunning views of Sydney Harbour. The 1k walk is within the Domain and is a walk for children five and under with parents and siblings.
Neuroblastoma Run 2 Cure is organised by the volunteer charity Neuroblastoma Australia to raise much needed funds for Children's Cancer Institute and Cancer Council NSW.
Neuroblastoma claims more lives of toddlers and babies than any other cancer, but survival rates can be changed with more research. The children affected by neuroblastoma are on average just two years old.
