Did you know that a staggering 18,087 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia every year? Sadly, that number continues to rise.*
On any given day, 50 women* will have their worlds turned upside down when they hear the words “You have breast cancer”, and eight women* will tragically lose their fight against the disease.
These women are our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends—and they need your help.
By raising funds for Mater Chicks in Pink as part of the RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run you are making an impact in the lives of these women.
Your fundraising efforts will be helping to fund life-saving research at Mater to better understand and treat breast cancer now and into the future.
Ultimately, you’ll be raising funds for women with breast cancer today to save lives tomorrow. We can’t thank you enough.
