IMG_5987

The pink carpet was out on Woolloomooloo Wharf during the week for the launch of the 2014 Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon Appeal at Criniti’s Italian Restaurant.

Pink was everywhere to be seen, from pink decorations and balloons to guests in pink clothing, some even had pink hair.

The Pink Ribbon Appeal hopes to raise $9.47million nationally and $3.66 million in NSW. Funds raised from the annual event go towards vital cancer research, advocacy programs, cancer prevention programs and patient support services.

IMG_5981Every day in Australia around 50 women are diagnosed with breast or a gynaecological cancer and in NSW alone, it’s predicted that by 2016, 18 people will be diagnosed with breast or a gynaecological cancer every day, with over 6,500 cases and 1459 deaths expected in a single year.

Make a Pink Ribbon Promise by selling pink merchandise, hosting a Girls’ Night In or holding a Pink Ribbon Fundraiser.

 

An exciting event coming up is the mass participation outdoor yoga to be held at Marks Park Tamarama on Sunday 12 October at 10am.

Cancer Council NSW will be selling merchandise to the public on Friday 24 October 2014, ahead of Pink Ribbon Day.
