Why I am supporting Breast Cancer Network Australia

My Story

Breast Cancer Network Australia is my "go to" for current information on Breast Cancer in Australia. I received oodles of information from BCNA when I was diagnosed. The package they sent me was a wealth of information, and I still refer back to it. When I saw the opportunity to participate in a Fundraiser for BCNA, I jumped on it. The timing was right! Last year was my first fundraiser by participating in The Great Cycle Challenge raising funds for Children’s Cancer. Another issue I am passionate about. I raised over $1000 thanks to my sponsors. This year I have chosen to participate in the El Camino Trek in Spain for Breast Cancer Network Australia. I am taking part in El Camino to raise much needed funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. The trek is a challenge lasting 5 days walking 150km through the country side of Spain. But the real challenge for me is coming out of my comfort zone, meeting new people and organising Fundraising events all on my own. Until the day after I signed up for this I had no idea on where to begin. I am required to raise at least $4000 which goes to BCNA. I will be funding my own travel and accommodation. The funds I raise will go to BCNA. Of course there will be a Chocolates drive and then I have some other ideas in mind. But you can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. I thank my donors in advance and I look forward to having some fun with this. It means a lot for me to get involved and I love having your support. Your donation truly means so much to both myself personally and, of course, BCNA. Every single penny donated is very much appreciated. Together we can help Breast Cancer Network Australia create the world we want to see.

About El Camino

As part of Breast Cancer Network Australia’s Pink Lady El Camino Trek you will join a group of inspiring individuals dedicated to supporting all Australians affected by breast cancer.

On arrival in Madrid, Spain’s bustling capital city, you will set off on a guided tour, exploring the city’s highlights from past to present. You will then travel beyond city limits to embark on the Camino de Santiago. 

From Sarria to Santiago, you will trek under the shade of old oak trees into peaceful hamlets set against the rolling green backdrop of Galicia. At night, you will experience Spain’s colourful culture and cuisine. 

On what other adventure can you follow in the footsteps of the Romans, the Knights Templar, pilgrims and modern day adventurers to Santiago de Compostela?

Best of all, every step you take helps raise vital funds for BCNA to provide free programs, resources and support to all Australians affected by breast cancer.

About my cause: Breast Cancer Network Australia

Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) works to ensure that Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best support, information, treatment and care appropriate to their individual needs.

BCNA is the peak national organisation for Australians affected by breast cancer, and consists of a network of more than 120,000 members and 300 Member Groups. More than 90 per cent of our members have had a diagnosis of breast cancer, and the remaining members have had a personal experience with breast cancer through a family member or friend.

We are represented by the Pink Lady silhouette, symbolic of our focus on the women diagnosed with breast cancer and all those around her.
