Mayor James Denyer of Western Bay of Plenty is urging citizens to contribute to the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal.
Thousands of volunteers will be hitting the streets of New Zealand tomorrow and Saturday to raise money for patient support, education, and research into breast cancer.
James adds, "I support the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal because it raises awareness and improves breast cancer survival rates."
"We all have mothers, wives, daughters, aunts, and other family members who are or may be impacted by this illness, and it is our responsibility to provide them with the best possible support."
"We're asking everyone in the Bay of Plenty to show some love for Kiwis affected by breast cancer by donating to our Pink Ribbon Street Appeal, and we're so grateful to have Mayor Denyer join our call," says Ah-Leen Rayner, chief executive of Breast Cancer Foundation NZ.
As a nonprofit organization that is entirely dependent on the kindness of New Zealanders, we can continue saving lives because of their support. Your contributions will help us achieve our goal of having no breast cancer-related deaths.
In the Bay of Plenty region, about 190 women receive a breast cancer diagnosis each year. The Pink Ribbon Street Appeal raises funds exclusively for Breast Cancer Foundation NZ, which supports patients during their treatment and recovery, advances breast cancer research, and informs Kiwis about the value of early detection.
Contributions to the Pink Ribbon Street Appeal can be made online at bcf.org.nz/streetappeal23 or by way of volunteer collectors who will be out and about shaking pink buckets throughout the region.
As a non-profit, non-government organization, BCFNZ is reliant on donations and fundraising to sustain its programs in medical research and training grants, advocacy, education, and awareness about breast cancer, and providing support to Kiwis affected by the disease.
