The CC4WDC Pink Ribbon Chicks are conducting fundraising with a difference by selling a cheeky new calendar for 2017 to raise funds for breast cancer research. Featuring members of the group in a series of beautiful black and white photos, sales from the 15 month calendar will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF).
The concept for the CC4WDC Pink Ribbon Chicks calendar was initiated during one of the Club’s Ladies Days, during which only the women drive and participate in a day trip to the local State Forests/National Parks for a bit of Four wheel driving fun. The ladies wanted to do something to support a close friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Inspired by the movie “The Calendar Girls”, an idea was born to create a camping themed calendar as a fundraiser, and to have ‘a bit of a laugh’ for a good cause. The photo shoot certainly put each of the girls well outside their comfort zone but was also great fun, and a fabulous, positive team building experience that they will always treasure.
“What these ladies are doing is amazingly brave and they fully deserve our support. This is a very worthy cause and a great initiative for our club. I personally will be purchasing a calendar and I encourage everybody to do the same. The target of $10,000 is very achievable if we all get behind them and help” Craig Green, President, CC4WDC
NBCF is the only national body that funds life-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public. Breast cancer is the most common life-threatening cancer facing Australian women with eight women dying from the disease each day — mothers, sisters, wives, daughters and friends. Although rare, it is important to remember that breast cancer affects men too.
Research is the most effective way to improve the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer. When NBCF started in 1994 the five year survival rate for breast cancer in Australia was 76%. Right now, this is 90%. By funding only world-class research, NBCF is working towards a goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.
Moana Wood, General Manager, Fundraising and Development at NBCF congratulated the team at CC4WDC team for their originality and passion and encouraged Australians to purchase the new Pink Ribbon Chicks Calendar.
“Breast cancer is the most common life-threatening cancer facing Australian women today. Research is the only way to stop people dying from this disease,” she said.
“Amazing and passionate supporters like the CC4WDC Pink Ribbon Chicks enable NBCF to further accelerate breast cancer research to achieve our ultimate goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030,” said Moana.
