What inspired you to join RACQ International Women's Day Fun Run?

My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 after having a mammogram in her home town of Charleville on the BreastScreen bus.  If it wasn’t for this early screening service the outcome of my mother's diagnosis could have been a lot worse.  Her treatment at Mater was exceptional, the understanding and compassion but most importantly her inclusion in her treatment was first class.  Women living in rural and remote Qld get cancer and when they do the only option available to them is they have to leave their home and community to access treatment....this emotional and financial burden cannot be measured....I am joining the RACQ International  women’s day fun run in support of all outback women and knowing our fundraising activities will make a difference!

Where are you planning your 5km walk?

We have participants from across Qld joining the Winton PINK team with walkers participating from Middlemount, Charters Towers, Winton, Charleville and Roma.  I will be in Roma and walking on 7 March 2021.

How are you fundraising?

We are Fundraising online as well as locating Chicks in Pink donation cans at various stores in the Winton community.

What inspired you to join RACQ International Women's Day Fun Run?

In August last year my sister Margaret was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, this was such a shock for our family but we were in for another shock when I was also diagnosed with Breast Cancer just 6 weeks later. We have both had our treatments at the Mater and have received such great care from our oncologist, surgeons and breast care nurses, they all managed to make an overwhelming situation a little less scary and we will be grateful to them all forever! We also both received the wonderful practical gifts from Mater Chicks in Pink after our surgeries and the parking vouchers from Chicks in Pink were always appreciated, especially when you’re having weekly appointments. 

We wanted to do the walk with our family to raise money so others can benefit from Chicks in Pink like we have. 

Where are you planning your 5km walk?

We are looking forward to a lovely walk on March 7th with the team along Kedron Brooke Trail, finishing with a celebratory breakfast with them all! 

How are you fundraising?

Most of our fundraising has been done through social media. Margaret and I have been sharing our Breast Cancer journey the past few months on Instagram @lulasisters and have been sharing our fundraising link there, as well as on our personal Facebook pages, letting everyone know how great the Chicks in Pink are. Our friends and family have done the same on their Facebook pages and the team has also sent lots of emails to their friends. Next week the school our children go to are having a bake sale to help! It’s all hands on deck!

Will you stand with Amy, Marissa and Karen to show the 53 Australians who are diagnosed with breast cancer every day, that we walk as one?
