Mater Group Executive team up for RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run

Mater Group Executives are strapping on their walking shoes to take part in this year’s fun run event in support of women with breast cancer who are treated at Mater.  

The group, who has signed up as Mater Group Executive team, will walk the 5 km and undertake local fundraising activities to help Mater Chicks in Pink raise more than $620 000 for breast cancer research and support services. 

Mater Group CEO Shane Kelly said the fun run was one of Mater’s most significant, annual community events with more than 12 000 people participating each year.

“The RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run has become Brisbane biggest celebration of women and a powerful show of support for Mater and our breast cancer research and services,” Shane said.

“Our Executive team aims to help create further awareness of the event and is committed to raising more than $3000 towards reaching our fundraising target,” he said.

If you would like to help the Executive team reach their fundraising goal please visit Mater Group Executive team page to make a donation or get together your own team and sign up to join in.

The Executive team will also be holding a raffle at Café on 3 during the next few weeks.  Keep your eye out for a chance to enter the draw and win.
