October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we want to share with you the many ways that you can show your support for this terrible and life-threatening disease. Whilst The Laser Lounge colour is orange… we say go pink this month to show your support!
The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading community-funded organisation in Australia raising money for research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer. Since their establishment in 1994, $97 million has been awarded to fund over 340 Australian-based research projects across the country, to improve the health and wellbeing of those affected by breast cancer. The aspirational goal is to achieve ZERO deaths from breast cancer by 2013, and we could not be more supportive of this beautiful dream!
So, how can you help? Here are just a few ways below:
- Fundraise! Fundraising for the NBCF can be a fun and rewarding endeavour. Host a fundraising event with a close group of friends – try a girl’s night in… watch Pretty in Pink and indulge in pink cupcakes!
- Join an NBCF event! There are a wide variety of sporting and marathon events hosted by the NBCF to help raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer Research. The ‘Kokoda Chicks’ event is being held from the 10th – 19th October! Check out their website on how you can get involved!
- Host a Pink Ribbon Breakfast! Host a celebration of life, love and friendship with your family, friends or workmates… whether it is a picnic, brunch, breakfast or morning tea!
These are just a few ways you can get involved this October, to raise awareness and funds for Breast Cancer! It’s a great way to get together with the special people in your life, and raise awareness for an extremely important cause.
