Dear BCNA members,
BCNA regretfully advises that, due to unforeseen costs and logistical and timing obstacles, the Field of Women 2013 in Sydney on 10 August at ANZ stadium will not go ahead as planned and will be rescheduled.
We know many of you have already been making plans to stay in Sydney for this very special event, so we wanted to let you know as soon as we had made this difficult decision.
I thought I would let you know that BCNA has just launched our new Financial and Practical Assistance fact sheet for women.
It outlines a range of benefits, subsidies and services that may be available for you and your family to help reduce the financial impact of breast cancer.
We hope that the fact sheet is helpful to you as well as those who may be supporting you - whether it be a partner, parent, friend or colleague.
I wanted to send a sincere 'thank you' to those who were involved in a local Pink Sports Day events around the country.
Up to 1,000 sporting clubs across Australia turned pink over Mother's Day weekend (11-12 May 2013) to pay tribute to those in their community affected by breast cancer, while raising funds and awareness for BCNA.
The initial feedback has been very positive so thank you for taking the time out of your weekend to contribute to the success of the campaign.
Hello from a very excited Queen of Pink Bun,
My favourite time of the year is here again.....Pink Bun time!
Between 2nd - 22nd May, more than 600 Bakers Delight bakeries across Australia will ‘pink up’ and donate 100% of the sale of their Pink Finger Buns to BCNA.
Updated: 16/05/2013 - Giveaway now closed!
KitchenAid has long been a supporter of BCNA and this Mother’s Day we’re excited to giveaway a KitchenAid Baking Essentials prize pack to one lucky online network member valued at $149.85.
The prize pack includes a KitchenAid Hand Mixer (pictured), KitchenAid Spatula and a Profiline PushPan – everything you need to whip up a fabulous cake this Mother’s Day!
I just wanted to introduce myself – my name is Katrina and I’m the Fundraising Manager at BCNA.
I joined the team at the end of last year and in that time I have met some amazing members and volunteers and have been working on some really exciting initiatives.
It always amazes me how quickly the first few months of the year fly by and I can’t believe we are already into April!
Amongst all the programs and resources we plan to deliver this year – we also have a full year of awareness and fund raising activities and events planned:
Pink Sports Day
I wanted you to be the first to know that registrations are now open for BCNA's Pink Sports Day event to be held on Mother’s Day weekend (11-12 May).
While some of you might remember the Pink Footy & Netball Day from previous years, this year we’re excited to be inviting every sporting code to get involved!
The latest in BCNA’s series of short videos has been completed and focuses on how a diagnosis of breast cancer impacts the whole family.
In the new video BCNA members speak out about what their diagnosis meant for their family, tips for telling loved ones including children and parents, and how partners can best provide support during a difficult time.
It’s official! BCNA is presenting a Field of Women in 2013!
Many of you will have stood on the Field in 2005, 2007 or 2010, and know what an unforgettable experience it is.
This year, we’re spreading the love and heading to Sydney on Saturday 10 August. The Field will be held in the evening before a match between Sydney Swans and Collingwood at ANZ Stadium.
Tickets aren’t on sale yet but we’ll let you know as soon as they are! In the meantime, please spread the word through your networks.
Today is International Women's Day, and across the world thousands of events will be held to inspire women, celebrate achievements and reflect and take action where inequality still exists.
The 2013 theme is 'The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum’. Many women around the world do not enjoy the same opportunities or basic human rights that we do in Australia – access to basic hygiene, clean water, and personal safety – to name just a few. Sexual and gender-based violence remain massive problems around the world.
