Wanaka’s women are a good bunch and this year’s efforts at multiple Pink Ribbon Breakfasts proved it. Each year the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation runs the month-long fundraiser which sees local advocates organise a pink breakfast that raises money for much needed research and support for women with breast cancer.
The first event was organised by Anna Laming, Jane Sharman and Kelly Good who teamed up for their Pink Ribbon Breakfast on Friday, May 17 at Urban Grind. “It was a lovely relaxed morning with delicious food and time to connect with a room full of beautiful and supportive women,” said Sharman. “We are delighted to announce that we raised over $2330 for the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ.”
The second event was yesterday morning at Aspiring Village, where around 40 ladies in pink enjoyed a delicious breakfast. Standing proudly amongst them were four breast cancer survivors, Doreen Broadley, Susan Beardly, Jenny Hughes, and Maggie Ackley, who are living testament to the importance of research and treatment.
