THE toughest Cowboys in town are ready to gear up for this weekend's match but they will not be wearing their normal game day attire.

Tomorrow, the under 16s will be going pink to show their support for the Kim Walters Choice Program.

The players will be covered from head to toe with pink jerseys, shorts and even socks.

The day will kick off at Father Ranger Oval at 8:30am with the Collegians and Gremlins under 7s and 8s taking to the field first.

Great football is not all that's on offer with plenty of sporting memorabilia, including two pink jerseys and a signed Broncos jersey, ready to go to the highest bidder in an auction set to take place after the A grade game.

Organiser Donna Watson is asking people to head down and lend their support.

"During the day we ask the people to give generously to a fantastic program that helps and supports women with breast cancer and gynaecological cancers," she said.

"We have over 40 prizes for a multi-draw auction that have been kindly donated by local business houses," Ms Watson said.

"Prizes include two nights accommodation at the Girraween Environmental Lodge, RSL dinner vouchers, fruit and meat trays, massage vouchers, hair care packs, Natio gift packs, wine and glasses plus many more."

The Zaraffa's van will also make an appearance bringing with them some pink muffins.

The girls are also asked to show their support by adding something pink to their outfits.
