Breast Cancer Research Trust and Christchurch Top 10

At Christchurch Top 10 HQ we have been doing our bit to support the Breast Cancer Research Trust. At our recent conference in Queenstown, the Holiday Accommodation Parks Association of New Zealand chose the Breast Cancer Research Trust as the charity of choice again for 2012 and 2013. The aim is to increase our fundraising efforts to achieve a grand total of $78,000!

Over the past 5 months we're proud to say Christchurch Top 10 has raised over $2150, mainly through the sale of lollies at our reception. Last month the boys at Top 10 participated in our very own style of ‘Movember’ raising $300 for Breast Cancer Research. Over November and December we’ve been wearing pink bandannas each Friday for our ‘Pink Bandanna Fridays’, in an effort to raise awareness for Breast Cancer Research.

Two women lose their battle with breast cancer every day in New Zealand. This sobering fact adds to the urgency of need to find a cure. Breast Cancer Trust’s goal is to find a cure for Breast Cancer by 2018 and the Trust becomes closer to this goal with every dollar donated to the cause. If you are keen to lend a hand there are a number of ways which individuals can become involved with Breast Cancer Research Trust, from volunteering time to embarking on fundraising campaigns such as the $1000 challenge.
