ZERO HERO - 5KM A DAY
G'day everyone, I am setting myself up for the Zero Hero 5KM a day challenge for the whole of November 2022 to raise money and awareness for National Breast Cancer Foundation and world-class breast cancer research!
The National Breast Cancer Foundation is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public.
I believe research is the best way to prevent deaths, help families and improve upon how breast cancer is diagnosed, managed and treated.
Please donate to my page to make a secure online donation and help me reach my desired goals.
I have been a passionate and proud NBCF Think Pink Ribbon Partner for over 12 years now. Thinking Pink is something I do everyday. For I personally know every single cent (donation), big or small, will help so many to make a change and a much needed difference, leading us in the right direction here in Australia.
Please donate today!
All donations over $2 are tax deductible and you will be issued with a tax-deductible receipt via your email provided as soon as you make your donation online.
Thank you so much for your much needed support! And remember to Think Pink this November!
