Go Pink with IHF to Raise Awareness for Breast Cancer

By October 13, 2022Fundraising, Recent

Ipswich Hospital Foundation (IHF) brings the community together each October to raise awareness and to help raise funds for Breast Cancer care in the West Moreton region.

IHF Go Pink campaign is in its third year, and we are very proud that we have been successfully able to help fund medical research and specialised equipment for our local Breastscreen team.

This year we are fundraising to help BreastScreen in purchasing new equipment to provide gold class breast cancer care in the West Moreton region. You can help support this worthwhile cause and show your support by purchasing Go Pink merchandise, attending an event or making a donation via our website https://go-pink.ihfoundation.org.au/events.

With the official Go Pink day on Friday 28 October, join us for our Go Pink breakfast being held at Brothers Leagues Club at 7am. Tickets are available on our website, with plenty of prizes to give away, an inspirational guest speaker and ample opportunities to network with likeminded community members. IHF will also be holding a community market day at the Ipswich Hospital in front of the Jubilee building between 10am – 2pm, all members of the public welcome.

Scott Young, the CEO of IHF said, “Breast cancer has become a major concern in recent years, with the number of reported cases rising steadily each year. We must encourage people to get screened regularly and ensure that they know how to spot potential signs of breast cancer at an early stage. Early detection really does save lives.”

“Another great way to support breast cancer care in our community is through peer-to-peer fundraising and purchasing Go Pink merchandise. We have launched a new peer-to-peer fundraising portal and online store, where you can get your very own fundraising webpage, share your story and purchase a range of Go Pink merchandise, such as shirts, stationery and skincare products,” said Scott.

IHF is a trusted community partner supporting West Moreton Health to deliver safe, quality healthcare promoting community health and wellbeing. To learn more about IHF Go Pink and secure your ticket, please visit: https://go-pink.ihfoundation.org.au/events .
