October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Passionate. Pride. Penrith.

For the month of October, Penrith has a very important job. It’s to turn the whole town PINK.

Six years ago The McGrath Foundation selected Penrith as the first metropolitan area in which to head the Pink Up Your Town Campaign. 

Since then Penrith has turned pink every October and raised loads of funds. 

“We have such a tight knit community here and I know we will band together once again to raise money for Breast Care Nurses that help individuals (and their families) affected by breast cancer,” said Gai Hawthorn OAM, President and Ambassador of Pink Up Penrith.

There will be many events held locally over the next month, and some have already kicked off.

“It was an honour to be a part of the Pink Up Penrith Golf Day to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation goal of 250 McGrath Breast Care Nurses by 2025,” said Penrith MP Karen McKeown OAM.

“Our Government has also announced 29 new Breast Care Nurses in this years Budget!”
