SGK Sydney Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October was International Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In support of this, the Sydney office went pink to raise money for the Pink Ribbon movement.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide and is increasing. Across Australia alone, an estimated 19,371 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. It is estimated that over 3,000 women and as many as 32 men will die from breast cancer in 2019 – an average of eight people every day. The Pink Ribbon movement has made a bold statement and are aiming for zero deaths by 2030.
To do our bit to help out, we had a pink-themed afternoon tea – who’d have thought so many pink savoury nibbles existed or could be created, let alone the huge spread of sweet treats!
But it didn’t stop at the food…
To really get into the swing of things the whole office was encouraged to dress in pink for the day. The resultant display was a heady mix of pink shirts, wigs and frills – and even some managing to pull off all three (and then some)!
In getting into the spirit, the office raised almost A$900 for the cause. A great effort which was welcomed with heartfelt thanks from the Pink Ribbon team.
Well done, SGK Sydney!
