LONDON - Glenn McGrath’s own breast cancer charity foundation has raised a question against the bowler’s engagement to Sara Leonardi.
The McGrath Foundation - set up by the former cricketer and his late wife to raise money for breast cancer care - is conducting a national poll to gauge public opinion on his new relation.
The Foundation has polled 1200 people, asking if it shows disrespect if the next Mrs McGrath-to-be accompanies the champion fast bowler to the Ashes, and whether the relationship had made them change their opinion of the foundation.
McGrath Foundation managing director Kylea Tink said the bulk of the survey’s questions related to awareness of its work.
“What we’re very conscious of doing is understanding where people are at and how they perceive us,” News.com.au quoted her as saying.
“Glenn is a very important part of the foundation and his commitment is unwavering. His life is moving on and we want to make sure people are comfortable,” Tink added.
Jane McGrath died in mid 2008 after a long battle with breast cancer, leaving McGrath to raise their children Holly and James.
She also left a legacy of raising awareness about the condition. (ANI)
