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 145 McGrath Breast Care Nurses can continue to provide support to families experiencing breast cancer across Australia.
Pull On Your Socks!
Working from home doesn’t have to be drab, pull on a pair of our pink socks to help ensure our 145 McGrath Breast Care Nurses can continue to provide support to families experiencing breast cancer across Australia.
Check out all the fun ways you can Pull On Your Socks to make a difference or register your fundraising event now!
Pink Up Your Town
This Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) get the whole community together to Pink Up Your Town and help ensure our 145 McGrath Breast Care Nurses can continue to provide support to families experiencing breast cancer across Australia.
Now in its fourth year, Pink Up Your Town is getting bigger and better every year – so get involved! Turn your town pink and make a difference to the families in your community experiencing breast cancer.
Why fundraise for the McGrath Foundation?
While more than 86,000 families have been supported by McGrath Breast Care Nurses since 2005, there’s still a lot more to do to ensure every family going through breast cancer has access to a McGrath Breast Care Nurse.
We’re here to help
The team here at the McGrath Foundation is here to support you every step of the way to make your fundraising as successful as possible, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of the Community Fundraising Team.
