Wonthaggi Power president Brett Tessari, Megan Harris from CreativeEdge Media, Denni Slorach from PurpleX and Michael Wrigley from the Wonthaggi Plaza are supporting the Wonthaggi Plaza Breast Cancer Challenge.
LOCAL Paramedics will go head to head in a fitness challenge with the Wonthaggi Power Football Netball Club to raise money for Breast Cancer this Saturday morning. The Wonthaggi Plaza Breast Cancer Challenge is to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation for Breast Cancer research. The Wonthaggi Ambulance Service and Wonthaggi Power members will battle it out in front of Plaza shoppers to raise funds for Breast Cancer research between 10am and noon. The day is being supported Ambulance Victoria, Wonthaggi Power, the Wonthaggi Plaza, WIN television, PurpleX Design and Print, CreativeEdge Media, Voyage Fitness and the Sentinel-Times. “When the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) was founded in 1994, 30 per cent of women diagnosed with breast cancer lost their battle with the disease,” organiser Megan Harris said. “In less than 20 years, this figure has halved. NBCF believes this achievement is primarily due to research – the most effective way to improve the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer. “We will have women who are Breast Cancer survivors collecting donations at the event from Plaza shoppers who are urged to support the initiative. “A gold coin donation gives a donor the opportunity to go into the draw for one of 10 gym memberships donated by Voyage Fitness-Wonthaggi.” So join your community this Saturday morning and make a difference at the Wonthaggi Plaza Breast Cancer Challenge.
