Go Dry this July for the McGrath Foundation!

This year will be the second year the McGrath Foundation is a major beneficiary of the Dry July Foundation.

2020 has been a tough year – for all of us. The last thing people might want to do is go 31 days without alcohol. So this July, go as dry as you’re willing to try. There is the choice of going dry for 31, 21, or 14 days, or simply nominate your number of days. No matter how long you choose to go dry for, you will be raising funds that will help ensure our 143 McGrath Breast Care Nurses can continue to provide support to families experiencing breast cancer across Australia.
