Held annually in the month of March, Bridge to 2030 gives the National Breast Cancer Foundation supporters the experience of a lifetime: the chance to climb Australia's iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, while 'bridging the gap' between funding and research.
Held at Bridge Climb Sydney, the event encourages corporates to form teams of 10, with each team member challenged to raise a minimum of $1,000. Collectively, these funds will help to keep NBCF-funded researchers on the road to discovery and stop deaths from breast cancer.
Registration opens December 2018.

Hearing the speeches and stories from professors Sarah Hosking and Sandra O’Toole and the Q&A with Barbe Dolan really touched our hearts".

Importance of research
Research has helped increase the survival rate of breast cancer from 76% in 1994 to 90% today. Research is the only way to prevent deaths from breast cancer and break-throughs such as understanding the sub-types of breast cancer have led to successful treatments such as herceptin and tamoxifen, saving thousands of lives
With more people surviving breast cancer, research that helps refine treatments and help survivors deal with the physical and psychological after-effects of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, so they can live well, is also important.
