Afternoon all,

I just wanted to introduce myself – my name is Katrina and I’m the Fundraising Manager at BCNA.

I joined the team at the end of last year and in that time I have met some amazing members and volunteers and have been working on some really exciting initiatives.

It always amazes me how quickly the first few months of the year fly by and I can’t believe we are already into April!

Amongst all the programs and resources we plan to deliver this year – we also have a full year of awareness and fund raising activities and events planned:

Pink Sports Day
Sporting clubs around Australia will turn pink over the Mother's Day weekend, to pay tribute to those affected by breast cancer and raise funds for BCNA.

Pink Bun (2–22 May)

Over 600 Bakers Delight bakeries across Australia will donate 100% of the sale of their Pink Finger Buns to BCNA throughout this period.

Fun Runs

There are a number of fun runs throughout the year that supporters can participate in and raise funds for BCNA.

BCNA Melbourne Luncheon (15 Oct)

Our annual Pink Lady Luncheon will be held at the National Gallery of Victoria as part of Australia's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Pink Lady

Mini Field of Women events (Sep– Nov)
We are expecting continued support from our members this year with a number of community events to be held throughout the year and in particular around October as part of Australia’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

And finally........ Challenge Event (Feb 2014) …….. we are also in the process of recruiting participants for our very first overseas adventure to Vietnam involving a personal cycling challenge to be held in February 2014 (stay tuned for more information).

So, as you can see we will continue to keep busy throughout the year and I am looking forward to keeping in touch with you all.

Warmest regards,
