Racecourse Road World Record bid for Breast Cancer Awareness
Posted on Monday, 17 October, 2011
Dressing Racecourse Road in pink this October to support Breast Cancer Awareness has been a great success, but now a world record is being attempted to raise both funds and awareness.
The Racecourse Road Business Group and the Mater Foundation’s Chicks in Pink invite you to come along and take part in an inaugural world record attempt to create the largest set of pink breasts on 23 October at Eagle Farm Markets.
The businesses along one of Brisbane’s most recognised boutique and dining strips have been out in force, dressing the road from the Racecourse to the River in pink for a number of years now.
For the World Record attempt, participants will be asked to dress in pink and to make a gold coin donation. ALL proceeds will be directed to Mater’s Chicks in Pink Foundation and applied to supporting those affected by breast cancer and contributing to greater understanding and medical research.
The sign on for the world record attempt will commence at 10am for an 11am start. It is encouraged participants dress from head to toe in pink - white at a pinch - to create a sea of pink for the photograph.
I look forward to seeing our tight-knit community ‘pretty in pink’ this weekend when the inaugural world record attempt in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is launched.
For further information on how to get involved or what to expect on the day, phone Emma in the Hamilton Ward Office on 3403 1095 or Bev Sotiriou of the Racecourse Road Business Group on 0409 722 460.
