…and help support Breast Cancer Research.
THE NATIONAL BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION IS THE LEADING COMMUNITY-FUNDED ORGANISATION IN AUSTRALIA RAISING MONEY FOR RESEARCH INTO THE PREVENTION AND CURE OF BREAST CANCER.
In 2016 NBCF has committed over $12 million to fund more than 30 research projects that will contribute towards our goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. This year we have continued to fund innovative projects that investigate new avenues for treatment, and new applications for existing treatments to improve outcomes for breast cancer patients. The researchers will explore promising areas of investigation, some of which include more effective immunotherapies for hard to treat breast cancers, targeted treatment delivery systems, and predictive tests for relapsing cancer. NBCF also launched the Leadership Fellowship, a five year grant which allows a senior researcher to address some of the big questions in breast cancer. In total, since 1994, NBCF has awarded more than $127 million to around 430 Australian-based research projects to improve the health and well-being of those affected by breast cancer.
We believe research is the most effective way to end breast cancer. Our aspirational goal is to achieve zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. With 42 Australians diagnosed each day and seven dying from the disease, there is still much to do.
FOHER Multisport will donate 5% from the sale of each Pink Bike Posse singlet and t-shirt to the NBCF. We are also proud to be the major sponsor of the Cairns Crocs Triathlon Club’s annual ladies only triathlon Tri de Femme, where 100% of proceeds from the event are donated to the NBCF.
