Turn The River Pink a Success
On Saturday the 6th of October, more than 250 members of the Penrith community took time out of their Saturday morning and participated in the annual Turn The River Pink event; a charity walk around the Nepean River which aims to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Hosted by Tanti Financial Services, R A Carroll Accountant and GMA Tax each year, participants are invited to come along in their best pink costume, put on their walking shoes and complete the 7km walk to raise much needed funds and awareness for Breast Cancer.
This year’s event was the largest yet with a fantastic $7,200 being raised on the day. Participants enjoyed the fun of the morning after successfully completing the 7km walk, staying for a BBQ breakfast and taking plenty of photos and sharing the message across social media on the day. The response on the day was overwhelming, all for a great cause.
With the National Breast Cancer Foundation aiming for zero deaths by 2030, the three local businesses involved hope to grow this annual event to help towards making the goal a reality. Turn The River Pink takes place in October each year to coincide with Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
