PINK UP PENRITH
Passionate. Pride. Penrith.
For the month of October, Penrith has a very important job. It’s to turn the whole town PINK.
McGrath Foundation selected Penrith as the first metropolitan area in to head the Pink Up Your Town Campaign.
“It’s a great honour that the McGrath Foundation chose Penrith LGA to lead this fantastic cause. We have such a tight knit community here and I know we will band together to raise money for Breast Care Nurses that help individuals (and their families) affected by breast cancer.”
We are so proud that through the efforts of the Penrith LGA Community a Breast Care nurse has been appointed to Nepean Hospital and we anticipate this year we will be able to maintain that special care provided to those diagnosed with Breast Cancer and their families.
To achieve this mammoth initiative, a super committee consisting of business owners from Penrith and St Marys is dedicated to bring the town together to create and encourage local businesses, groups, schools to plan fundraising events to fund specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia. The Committee hopes the entire town will turn pink and get on board for a worthy cause!
