Local event guide this PINKTOBER
The Sunshine Coast community have plenty of reasons to go pink this October. In supporting a local initiative, PINKTOBER for Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation, the money raised on the coast stays on the coast.
Sunshine Coast charity, Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation are so excited about the overwhelming support they have received for their PINKTOBER campaign.
The Sunshine Coast community have rallied behind their local breast cancer foundation with Nambour State High School students to make a pink 'C' on their oval, Cooroy to turn pink for a day, Birch Caroll and Coyle to host a "Chicks at the Flicks" movie night and so many local businesses to donate proceeds of events to cmbcf.
Cooroy will turn pink in support of PINKTOBER on Tuesday October 26.
The Cooroy community are encouraged to dress in pink and head along to IGA for a sausage sizzle from 9am-2pm.
Luke Super IGA Cooroy customer service manager Lyn Johanson said her aim was to support a local charity and raise the awareness of breast cancer and how it affects so many people.
"We wanted to support Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Foundation because they are a local organisation that has helped so many woman in our local community," she said.
cmbcf co-founder and president John O'Leary said the idea of turning a town pink for a whole day was amazing.
"For one person to go pink for a day is an outstanding effort, but for a whole community to do so well it just proves how supporting the Sunshine Coast community is," he said.
Nambour State High School make a pink 'C' on the oval on October 28.
Nambour State High School students have organised to show their support for PINKTOBER for cmbcf my making a pink 'C' on their oval.
cmbcf co-founder and vice president Kylie Perkin said she was overwhelmed by the student's support.
"It means a lot to the Foundation that the students are planning and organising to make our symbol on their oval," she said.
"It shows how everyone, no matter their age, is affected by cancer and how they can contribute to making a difference."
