Candice also revealed that she thinks holding a Pink Raceday is a ‘fantastic initiative.’

‘The McGrath Foundation always do the Pink Test with the cricket, so making this Pink Raceday is such a fantastic initiative and everyone always seems to get behind it,’ she added.

The charity raises funds to place McGrath nurses across Australia, in order to help improve the lives of women who have developed breast cancer.

The organisation also provides education to increase breast awareness in young people, with a particular emphasis on young women.
