On March 3rd Aurora participated in the International Women’s Day Fun Run to raise funds for women with breast cancer.
Our team managed to raise just over $1,000 for the Mater Chicks in Pink Foundation which goes directly to helping women in need.
Over 13,000 people participated in the fun run, choosing either a 5km or 10km course circling around Southbank and Brisbane City.
With 18,087 women in Australia being diagnosed with breast cancer in the last year alone, it is remarkable that AUD $634,407 was raised by this event. This money will go toward providing practical support services for women who are currently battling breast cancer, as well as investing in potentially lifesaving breast cancer research taking place at the Mater.
A big thank you goes out to everyone that sponsored our team, as well as everyone else who participated in the event and kindly donated.
