Thank you for Going Pink!

By November 23, 2023Uncategorized

The Ipswich Hospital Foundation’s Go Pink Campaign, a vibrant and impactful initiative spanning the entire month of October, successfully concluded last month! 

We are thrilled to share you raised a total of $64,000! The outcome of this remarkable campaign will play a crucial role for breast cancer patients in the West Moreton region. 

Community engagement was nothing short of inspiring.  

West Moreton Health staff hosted IHF Go Pink morning teas across all hospitals in the region, the result? Over $7,000 was raised in one day, Ipswich Surgical Ward were our fundraising champions raising almost $1300!  We’d like to express our sincere gratitude for the enthusiasm and generosity of the incredible WMH staff throughout all West Moreton facilities. 

Club Services Ipswich (CSI) came on board as the main sponsor of the campaign. They hosted two events, including a breathtaking Luncheon adorned in pink, drawing a huge crowd, this and their merchandise and raffle sales over the month raised $8,000. 

19 third party fundraising activities amplified the impact of the campaign even further. Special thanks goes out to Orion Hotel and Quota Ipswich for your support, just to name a few. 

Our dedicated volunteers played a pivotal role in the success of the campaign, selling IHF Go Pink merchandise both online and face-to-face throughout the month. Their efforts, combined with the support of our community, resulted in a remarkable $17,000 raised towards our overall IHF Go Pink goal. 

The heart of our campaign lay in the stories of resilience and triumph. Local breast cancer champions Gillian Velasquez, Corina Kearvell, and Emma Robinson, who all underwent treatment, shared their inspiring journeys at various events. Additionally, BreastScreen Queensland was a constant presence, providing valuable support at the majority of our events. 

Thank you again to everyone who contributed to this campaign, your impact will make a real difference.
