One in three Australian women will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85. More than 16,300 women are diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer each year, which means 45 women are told daily that they have a women’s-related cancer.
Help raise money for the Cancer Council by hosting a Girls Night In at your place. Simply stay in with your favourite friends and ask them to donate what they’d normally spend on a night out to the charity.
“Girls Night In is a particularly important event for the Cancer Council, as it is a truly unique and fun way in which funds and awareness for women’s cancers can be raised,” Girls Night In national event manager Jodie Wainwright said.
“The beauty of the Girls Night In concept is simple — just by getting the girls together at home, women can help raise valuable funds for research and support services for breast, cervical, ovarian, vaginal and uterine cancers.”
Last year more than 150,000 women joined together at more than 10,000 Girls Night In events to raise $4.9 million for vital research, information, prevention and support services. This year the Cancer Council is hoping to raise $5 million across Australia.
