The 2019 RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run takes place on Sunday 3 March, and throughout February participating Mater People have been ramping up their fundraising efforts to support women with breast cancer.
Digital Technology and Information Division’s team, ‘Mater4Mater’, has been making their presence known throughout the Mater Hill campus. Led by Director Information Management Sallyanne Wissman, they’ve taken great strides in reaching their $5000 target.
“Our first activity was a bake sale, which went really well and raised over $400 to get us moving towards our target,” Sallyanne said.
“In addition to the bake sale, we’ve got a fashion parade and raffle, a pancake day coming up, and we’re keeping collection tins stocked throughout the division.”
A staggering 18 087 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Australia every year, and that number continues to rise.* Participants in the RACQ International Women’s Day Fun Run are aiming to raise a total of $800 000 to make an immediate impact for these women through Mater Chicks in Pink.
