Each October, around 10,000 volunteers take to the streets to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s work in research, education, advocacy and patient support.

Breast Cancer Foundation NZ is encouraging Aucklanders to donate to the charity’s Pink Ribbon Street Appeal next week.

On Friday October 27 and Saturday October 28, 10,000 volunteers will be hitting the streets all over New Zealand to raise vital funds for breast cancer research, education and patient support.

Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s chief executive, Ah-Leen Rayner, says: “We’re asking everyone in Auckland to show some love for Kiwis affected by breast cancer by donating to our Pink Ribbon Street Appeal.

“As a charity that doesn’t receive any government funding, it’s only thanks to the generosity of New Zealanders that we can carry out our life-saving work. Your donations will bring us closer to our vision of zero deaths from breast cancer.”

Every year, around 1030 women are diagnosed with breast cancer across the greater Auckland region. All of the money raised from the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal goes towards Breast Cancer Foundation NZ’s work to advance breast cancer research, educate Kiwis about the importance of early detection, and support patients through their treatment and recovery.

Donations can be made to the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal through volunteer collectors who will be out in force shaking pink buckets across Auckland on 27 and 28 October, or online at bcf.org.nz/streetappeal23
